    I'm not sure why my computer does this, but for some reason a window keeps popping up randomly. It's a My Computer type of window titled "System32". It pops up when I start the computer, when I'm talking online, browsing the internet, or even when I'm not using the computer at all. I can't figure out how to make it stop. I'm using a Toshiba laptop and running Windows XP Home Edition.
