I have Metaframe XP Citrix server running Windows 2000. I also have office 2003 installed. There seems to be a problem with switching in between windows. It can take up too 35 seconds which is an eternity for a customer service environment. The specific office application that causes the problem is called ctmon.exe. It's not essential to operation but it starts automatically whenever a user starts a Office application.

My question is how can I bar that executable from starting as a process for any users? That will solve the issue completely.

locate ctmon.exe

right-click the file, choose properties, and from the security tab, remove all access and click OK.
