    Each time I boot up my Windows XP Home OS computer, the System 32 folder is open on the desktop. How do I stop it from happening? Thanks in advance!!

    I have not checked msconfig. I'm not savvy on this stuff--what's the procedure?

    start --> run
    type msconfig
    now in the window that pops up...click on "Startup" tab.
    you will see loads of entries here. entries that have a "check" mark against them, start automatically when you start your PC.
    uncheck any of the entries that you think are not necessary. normally all the entries can be safely unchecked, but it depends on your choice whether you want somethings to start or not.
    otherwise you can post the name of the "Startup Iem" here and we will try to help you.
