Re: System 32 folder opens during start up

I also had a similar issue with Zone Alarm in that upon boot-up it would always open it's own folder. Turned out to be the same thing: quotes, " ", missing at the beginning and end of the entire filename.

I had a similar issue with a Symantec install. The registry key it wrote
to run VPtray was dorked up (it ended up having to be rewritten via
GPO). The issue was that it used a long file name including spaces and
had to be quoted in order to work.

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
