Windows XP Home edition. When Windows first boot up to the desktop, the system 32 folder is opened in a Window. How do you get the folder to stop opening everytime Windows is first started up.

Hello. Here is a simple quick check. Open My Computer. Click on Tools > Folder Options. Click View and scroll down and see if Restore last window on Login is checked. Uncheck it and reboot. There are other answers as well but this is the easiest and quickest. GoodLuck!!

Sorry, It's "Restore previous folder windows at logon". I'm bad. You can also check your startup list by running "msconfig" from the run command and click on the startup tab. There might be a shortcut pointing to it. Again...Goodluck!

Even if restore last folder is enabled, should not recur once folder is closed. Assume that you have already checked msconfig and startup folder.

Only thing that comes to mind is to search registry for system32 and see if you can find where it is loading on startup. Be prepared to look at a lot of keys though.

Maybe someone can pin a location down for you.
