    One: When I boot up, the my docs folder opens on the desktop. This is not listed in any known startup area in the registry win.ini or sys.ini I have


    When I right click on an .inf file I do not get the install option any
    more. Don't know where it went. Even have done a reinstal on XP to no avail.

    My install data in the .inf file in folder options is:

    "R:\WINXP\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection
    DefaultInstall 132 %1"

    totally normal. Anyone have a clue here?

    I remember this used to happen in win 95 and 98 and the fix was pretty simple.

    thanks, b.

    I heard of a guy who had that problem with the MyDoc folder. In his case Norton Clean sweap was the reason.

    Not my case. I have in general avoided these large wooly mammoths.

    • My Docs - look in msconfig and see if something is starting that's looking for something in My Docs
    • What happens if you double-click on a .inf file?

    It will open with notepad.exe.
