RE: System 32 folder opens during start up

  There was a major virus of a year or more ago, for which a
popular remedy included deleting a couple of registry keys.
Turned out that if one of those keys was absent, Windows 
would open that folder at startup.

Subject: System 32 folder opens during start up

I'm drawing a blank...

One of the computers that I maintain is giving me a headache. 
It's a personal computer, and every-time it boots up, the 
system32 directory folder opens up. I've looked in startup 
folders for all users, and a few other things, but cannot 
find the reason.

Any thoughts to turn this off? I suspect it may be in the 
registry, but I'm not definitely sure.

regards,

Dana
