    :confused:
    For some reason when my dell 8400 boots up the sys 32 file folder opens automatically along with yahoo, msn, and microsoft active sync.. It's not a major problem because I just close the window but for some reason it started doing it today. THANKS :confused:

    #260 system32 folder opens upon boot.

    To use the VBS Files: Download .vbs file and save it to your hard drive (you may want to right click and use Save Target As). Double
    click the vbs file. You will be prompted when the script is done.

    NOTE: If your anti-virus software warns you of a "malicious" script, this is normal if you have "Script Safe" or similar technology enabled. These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry.

    Yahoo and Msn have the option to start when windows starts up. You need to go into options to turn this off.

    I'm not familiar with the other program, but it probably has a similar feature.
