system32 folder

By happy_martian ·
Why is the system32 foler opens everytime when I logon to my computer? I am using Windows NT 4.0 server. I remember the last thing I did before this happening is deleting & restoring a file in the folder. How to fix it? Thanks a lot.

To correct this problem:

1. Edit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. If the right hand pane has an entry NoSaveSettings that is a 1, set it to zero until the problem is resolved. This should be a REG_BINARY value.

2. Edit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
For each Value, make sure that the string is valid, i.e., if the Value is ActiveMovie File Extensions, the string of this REG_SZ entry should be ActMovie.exe /Check and not null. The string must always start with an executable file. If it doesn't, fix it or delete the Value.
