spyware that isn’t?

I think I found an error in the system startup list of spybot. It says this:

“Current filename: D:WINDOWSsystem32ctfmon.exe

Database status: Not required – virus, spyware, malware or other resource hog
Filename: ctfmon32.exe

_CoolWebSearch_ parasite related – hijacking to Slawsearch.com

Source: Paul Collins Startup list”

which is however – so I think- _wrong! Infact according to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q282599/ it’s no virus but

“What Is the Ctfmon.exe (Ctfmon.exe) File?
Ctfmon.exe activates the Alternative User Input Text Input Processor (TIP) and the Microsoft Office Language Bar.”

I sent an email to spybot and hope that they will give me a statement regarding this!
