When booting XP, my 'Program Files' folder opens. How can I correct this from happening?

Run MSCONFIG and click the Startup tab. Then uncheck what you don't need.

Thanks for replying Dan. But, I think I found the problem. I went and made a new folder entitled, 'Program Files 2', to split up the program locations. It seems like WinXP didn't like that, so everytime Windows booted, the original Program Files folder would open. When I renamed the new folder, it stopped happening (for now anyway). Why this was happening, I don't know.

Good thinking and thanks for letting us know. I would never would have guessed what you did.

Have a great New Year.
