SYSTEM32 window pops up after login...

By adesso ·
After logging in to WIN 2000, the SYSTEM32 window pops up on the desktop. I have checked sysinfo, startup folder, everywhere that I know that includes my bootup sequence, but no evidence of SYSTEM32 anywhere in them.

How can I stop it from popping up each time I log in??

Thanks,
Michael

Addt. info:
The best that I can tell, the problem started after I installed all the peripherals (ie, printer, scanner, zip drive.). My HP Scanjet 5100C required a special driver in order to be compatible with WIN2000, but the others fit right in.

I've seen this on NT, the fix may be similar:

Run regedit on the affected machines and drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion and then either Run, RunOnce, RunOnce, RunOnceEx. Look for a key with a blank value (or an invalid value).

You remove the pheripherals one by one and uninstall them .. it a bit tedious .. with each removal of anyone peripherals you reboot and login again and try to pin point where the fault is .. from what i can see is maybe your scanner don't have win2k compliant driver .. so try to get the driver .
