    Thanks for the info netcop. You solved my problem as well. I found "\L:ENG" in my registry as well. You can read more about it here:

    glad to help. If you are unfortuante enough to have an HP product loaded, (printer, scanner here), it installs a sh**load of startup items also, which I disable thru msconfig. Amazing (though I am not surprised) it still does that when I select the "minimum/basic install" when I got these things.....

    Kinda like when I go to the CNN website, which I would expect to be reputable, I get about 2-3 pop-unders..... sheez.

    Missed that post...

    It looks like it has something to do with your soundcard, but if it didn't point to anything it could possibly have caused System32 to open.

    I'd suggest you open up msconfig, go to the startup tab, and figure out what you actually need at startup, because you have way too many startup applications. It may also help to read the Windows XP Tweaking Guides at www.tweakguides.com. After you've done all that, if it's still a problem, come back here.

    Hi guys!

    Still having a hard time with this System32 folder on Windows XP Professional. I have taken the following troubleshooting steps:
    1. Followed the instructions in MS KB article 170086 - was unable to find the ActiveMovie File Extensions or the SystemTray registry values.
    2. Checked msconfig for an "\L:ENG" entry - none exists
    3. Edited the HKLM and HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry keys as per the following article:
      http://www.ieinfosite.co.uk/tip_view.asp?id=106
    4. Finally, ran HijackThis and saved the log (please see the end of this posting)
    Other strange things that are taking place are (and I have no idea whether they are at all related):
    1. Extremely long logoff time (about 1.5 min....unusual on a new machine)
    2. OS does not save the last person to log in ID
    3. I am unable to save my MSN Password credential settings
    If you are still reading this, thank you so much for your patience!!
    If you know the answer, THANK YOU even more for being an ubergenius!

    Well guys! I figured it out! At least the system32 folder issue....still experiencing the other stuff...

    I downloaded EasyCleaner, which provides options for cleaning the registry, the add/remove programs, deleting unnecessary files and shortcuts, the startup programs, cookies, detects file duplicates, etc. You can download it here.

    Good luck!

    And if anyone has insight on the other issues...your help is very much appreciated!

    Lightbulb Re: System32 Folder Opens at Startup

    Thanks guys. I registered to this site just to replay to you.

    I did all that Microsoft said but I didn't found any "" on the registry (and first I had to learn what the registry was and how to edit it) so I kept reading your notes guys and even though it didn't give me the full answer I found what cause it (on my case) and how to solve it.

    What cause it: Definitely it had to do with the Sound Blaster Audigy 2 sound card that I have in the computer. Looks like the bad "entry" was created at its installation and is bad or incomplete and looks for something that can be activated manually if needed.

    Bad line: /:ENG

    Where: Registry.
    at: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Run

    How to get it out:

    Go to the Start Menu, click on Run, enter "regedit", click OK, on the directory find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Run. It handles like any directory. Inside it you will see few entries and values.

    The one that you want to delete is: SB Audigy 2
    Startup /l:<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">ENG.</st1:country-region></st1:place>

    Just delete that one and get out.

    There was a suggestion to go to MSCONFIG and deactivate the line on the
    startup menu but the order comes from the registry so if you take it completely out, you don't have to deactivate anything.

    Deactivating it on the
    startup menu is just a patch on a flat tire. Taking the line out is a tire that is never been flat.

    MSCONFIG is good though to find if you have that line on it.

    I don't remember all of it but the command reads as: /l:ENG and the location said: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run .


    I hope this helps somebody. It did it for mi.

    Thanks to all of you for your help .
