    I have an irritating problem. It doesn't really affect anything but it's really annoying.

    I have XP Pro. When boot it finished the C:\windows\system32 folder is always open on my desk top.

    I need to kill whatever is opening this folder everytime and if there were a way to see what's calling it then I could probably deal with.

    Dell Support has been no help. They want me to completely reinstall the OS. Bah!

    Give this a shot:

    Using Regedit, change the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENT VERSION/WINLOGON Change USERINIT from C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe to C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,

    Good luck.
