    Whoa!

    Nothing serious, but still annoying.
    Everytime i boot up my windows (Xp pro Sp1. ) It opens up my programs folder, how do i get rid of that? (It´s not in my autostart or msconfig or anything like that)

    Out

    No useto you this but I get this sometimes too. Only sometimes mind, haven't seen it in a few weeks and I am damned if I can work out what triggers it!:(

    If you leave windows open when you shut down, those windows will automatically re-open when the computer boots back up.

    But if have never left the program´s folder open, i usually close all my windows... Could there be somehting in the registry that would need some kicking to get rid of?

    Check the commands in msconfig and/or the shortcut commands in your startup folder for anything that doesn't actually start, has an invalid path or a path that misses quotes if it has spaces in it.

    Yeah it's usually caused by an invalid path and/or program being launched at startup. Normally it's set in the registry.

    Yes that solved it, thanks. I had a invalid entry in the msconfig startup section.
    Anyone got a clue what WpsRePsw.exe is supposed to be?
