I installed windows service pack 2 yesterday. Now

folder appears. At first I thought there was a new file
to run or installor something but there are no new files
in the folder. Is there a way of stopping my documents
from appearing?

Hi GG,

Try this: Control Panel/Folder Options/View tab, uncheck the line "restore
previous folder windows at logon". Click apply/ok, do not reboot yet.

Start/run msconfig, on the general tab select the diagnostic mode. Click
apply/ok and reboot at prompted.

The folder should not show up now. Rerun msconfig, put the system back in
normal mode. Click apply/ok and reboot once more. Does this help?

For most users, this will resolve the issue.

Interesting technique, Rick. What's going on that triggers the behavior
after installing SP2? Just a quirk that shows up on some systems or using a
certain combination of settings or?

Hi Sharon,

A quirk as far as I can tell, I can't find any rhyme or reason to it.

gg,

try checking on your startup folder if an icon of my documents is present.
(start > all programs > startup).

if you find a shortcut there, you can delete it.

hope this helps.

As a follow up.....

I am working privately with another user having this issue. While nothing
directly relates to the "My Documents" folder, there are 4 different spyware
programs, including Blazefind (which is the one I am beginning to suspect as
the problem) installed. Will let you (and others) know what I find.

Just an update:

Removing blazefind, as well as a few other spy programs, seems to have
resolved the issue with the "My Documents" folder opening at boot.

Very cool that you've been able to work this out with those afflicted by
this problem, Rick. Thanks for the update.

Haven't seen this site before (seems to be a software reseller site) but
they have what looks like good directions for manual removal for blazefind:
