Dana,

Have you tried to view the various startup keys in the registry using
MSCONFIG? I would start there and attempt to find anything that looks
out of the ordinary.

Furthermore, a fantastic tool to help out would be Autoruns by
SysInternals. This will give you a more granular view of the various
startup routines in Windows and help you dig down to the bottom of the
issue.

Good luck.

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
