    when i start up my computer, windows xp, for some reason all of my antispyware software folders open up on the desktop. why might this be and can anyone suggest how to stop it from happening. this started happening recently when i installed mozilla firefox and have no idea why this would happen.

    Check the Startup folder and run MSCONFIG and select the Startup tab. Then remove or uncheck them.
