I recently rebuilt my workstation and reloaded XP Pro SP 2. I have
reinstalled all my software but I am having trouble with Paperport
(Scansoft). The Paperport re-install went ok and my scanner is functional
but every time I reboot or log on an explorer window opens to the Paperport
directory on my c drive. I uninstalled the software and the symptoms
disappeared. I reinstalled and it came back. I've checked several registry
locations as found in other posts. I have checked the startup folder for
myself and all users (note: the explorer window pops up for all users who
log on including admin.).

Any suggestions?

Mike is completely correct, PP 7 is an aging program but still works good, I
am running XP Pro w/PP 7.
I would remove it through Add & Remove Programs reboot then reinstall and
apply these service packs.

PP_SP7005.exe
PP_SP702.exe

Thanks. I have already done all of these things to no avail.

The only other thing I can suggest would be to remove, reboot, download the
service packs to a folder then turn off virus protection, firewall, & any
spyware programs running in the background then reinstall everything
rebooting after installing the program and each service pack.
I would think there is something running in the background causing file
corruption during the install.

Uncheck ALL entries relating to paperport (you don't need any of them
starting up at startup) > OK
