Hi,
I've got more of an annoyance than a problem but I’m hoping someone can tell me how to sort it out.

I recently (about 3 weeks ago) built my PC and it has crashed once. When this happened I think I was viewing my D drive in explorer. Now every time I load up Windows the explorer window showing my D drive is displayed.

It is not really a problem as I can close it as normal, it's just getting on my nerves that every time I boot up my PC I have explorer already open.

Anyone know how to stop this?

Cheers

Welcome, sirdoris.

There's probably a Registry Edit to fix this, but I would try the following.

Start - Run - msconfig - OK

Click on the Startup tab and look for an entry with nothing in the Command column. If you find one, uncheck it. Also look for an entry that is opening Windows Explorer with the D drive and uncheck that one. If you found either or both then Apply. After you Restart you will get a scary looking message; just tell it to not display again.
