    During the startup of XP pro, a window pops up and it points to d:/programs. The folder is empty, I must have deleted the program originally in the folder and the folder was left behind.
    Where do I look to get rid of it?

    It is not in the config area.

    Go into any folder and click Tools-->Folder options. Click the view tab and uncheck "Restore previous folder windows at logon". Hope this helps!

    Is there anything inside your startup folder that doesn't start? The problem may be as simple as some missing quotes in a shortcut command. If a command reads i.e D:\program files\any.exe instead of "D:\program files\any.exe" Windows will only read until the space and start D:\program.

    Well, the restore button is unchecked, and everything in the startup folder works. If I remember correctly, the folder used to have a spy where detector program, which to auto start in xp.
