Whenever I startup my computer C:\Program Files opens on its own. I've seen
other posts where others have a similar situation with the My Documents
folder opening. I have tried the methods for correcting that issue but
nothing has worked so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

See "How to Troubleshoot By Using the Msconfig Utility in Windows XP"
(http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310560) for about how to find out
if some invalid link in your startup settings causes this.

Thx for the info. After a bit of messing around it turns out it was Webroots
Window Washer that was somehow causing the problem. I uninstalled it and
everything starts up just fine now. Thanks again.
