Whenever I turnon my computer, and login, a folder named 'SYSTEM32' pops up. It doesnot cause any problems and goes away when I shut it, but it is still annoying. What is the problem and how do I solve it?

the System32 folder shows on the desktop, there may be an invalid entry in the Registry

Start Regedit
Go to both:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Double check that the values do not have incorrect, incomplete, or blank entries

Bob & Puta, thanks very much, guys. But before I do anything, will the fact that I have 3 user logins on my XP make it necessary for me to run the program on each login? All 3 have system administrator capabilities and I'm using the Home edition of XP.

I thought the problem was with the SYSTEM32 folder opening up each time.

If you delete just the invalid entries in the Run sections, it will leave everything else.

Heey Bob & Puta!
I tried both your options. Doesnt work man. When I did the 'FIXSYSTEM32' option, the program gaveme a 'FINISHED' message sayin itcouldnt fix the problem.
The when I tried to use the 'REGEDIT' option, I found that the reg entries were different in the two places. There was no symmetry.
What do I do?
