    comuter dummy, Go to the link below and scroll down to line 260 (right column) and click on "System32 Folder Opens Upon Boot" to download a .vbs file fix.

    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.

    If that doesn't work go thru the links below.
