NT - Explorer opens at login

By ldgilman ·
I have a Windows Terminal Server that when ever any one log's in it automaticly opens the m:\wtsrv\system32 folder. I have looked in startup, and autoexec. And looked through the registery with regedit. I don't see anything obvious.

If it always comes up, no matter who logs in, it will likely either be in the startup group of the start menu for all users, or in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. It could be under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but it's unlikely.

Try a registry search for "M:\WTSRV" or "M:\\WTSRV". Also, check for any environment variables that might be set to this (e.g. %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32 will probably point to this directory as well).

I looked there previously, and did not see anything except what was supposed to be there.

I have had many problems where after logging in to NT, Explorer opens up to C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32. In every case I had a blank entry in the registry. If you open REGEDIT.EXE and navigate to the 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run' key, you will probably see a String Value that has nothing in the Data section. If so, delete it. This ALWAYS solves this problem for me.

I thank you very much for your input. I'm not sure I would have ever thought of a blank data field.
