RE: System 32 folder opens during start up

Run "msconfig", which presents you with all of the different areas which
are executed on startup.

You may find it's something benign, such as an unquoted filename which
contains spaces or other illegal characters.

The registry key you're looking for is probably
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

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
