    When I start or re-boot I always get several open folders one on top of the other on my screen. What's wrong?

    Are you closing them before shutting down?

    If so, what do you have on the start button, programs, start-up items?

    Also start button, run, then type msconfig and hit ok...go to the start-up tab.

    What folders are they?

    Hi Mustang Lady,

    Great you got it solved!

    But what caused it exactly? Was it FindFast, something in Msconfig/startup, or was it Norton?

    Greetz,

    :) I seems to have been Norton.
