Every time my machine is booted, the system32 folder opens (not currently
set to show its contents)...
It just displays and I can't figure out why.
Any ideas? I looked at the startup programs via msconfig, and still have no
idea.
TIA

That did it!
Thanks for the link... I gotta confess that running a vbs file makes me a
little nervous, but in this case I'm glad I did.
Thanks again,
Tom

Hi

There is a possibility that your AV/Firewall programs may have objected to a
..vbs file. Glad your problem is sorted.
