"Common" folder displays at boot!?

I installed Visual Studio 6, which requires a folder called "common" to be somewhere on your hard drive. I then installed a demo of a disk imaging program. Since installing that stupid demo, I now get a window that displays at startup, showing the contents of my "common" folder.
I removed the demo - no help. I used a "startup manager" to try and find what was making it do this - no help. Help! I can close the folder window, so it's not critical, just annoying. Any ideas on why this folder opens every time I boot?

Thanks, Rhod

Is it in your Startup folder maybe? Or, you can check the registry (though I wouldn't recommend it if your not sure about using the registry as you can really f*ck up your PC that way). I'd try HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and see if it's in there. You might also find SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run in HKEY_CURRENT_USER and HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT

Folder still comes up

Hey Canadude!

Thanks for the suggestions. I looked at the registry entries you mentioned (and the startup folder), but found no references to my "common" folder. Thanks for the reply.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
