Whenever I boot up my desktop using Windows XP Home Edition, a window opens
upon startup for the c:\windows\system32 folder. I can close it and continue
my work, but each time I logoff or reboot it comes back again. I have not
been able to find this folder on my start menu, so I don't have any idea how
to make it go away. Any ideas?

This can be caused by a blank entry, such as can be left behind by
an incomplete program removal, in the
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and/or
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run keys. It can also
be caused by an entry in these same keys that starts with a " / ."
