Forgot to say
Windows XP SP3 fully up to date till no longer supported by microsoft
McAfee supplied by BT
I don't know how to delete my own posts so I cant delete this thread but I would if I could.
I now don't think it was McUICmt.exe that restored the start up, and I have now found a way to stop it starting.
The reason I thought it was McAfee in the first place was because my start up log showed two lines as follows:
"New software found" (relating to ctfmon)
"ctfmon.exe (process I/D) started by McUICmt.exe"
Anyway problem solved
Did you really want the thread deleted? We usually try to keep as many as possible to help others.
I'm happy for it to stay here, but if its rubbish (I don't know) I don't want people wasteing time on reading it. So you decide if you think it might help someone or not.
Ctfmon is the Microsoft process that controls Alternative User Input and the Office Language bar. It’s how you can control the computer via speech or a pen tablet, or using the onscreen keyboard inputs for Asian languages.
But don't ask me how that's related to McAfee, Technical Support would know and it's free by phone or online chat. XP SP3 is still supported until sometime next year, so you are OK on that front.
If you really need to know the link is below.

Just a thought, there are two McAfee entities that would put mcuicnt into the registry, one is the regular software and the other is Security Scan Plus which is totally unnecessary if you are already protected, It arrives as an option with such things as Adobe Flash or Reader for example.
So check your Control Panel / Add or Remove for that and uninstall it if you see it.
Altered the header to McUICNT instead of McUICMT just to future searchers can find it.
