    Startup/Logon screen question

    When I startup my computer a folder appears from Windows Explorer.

    How do I get that to stop appearing everytime I startup/logon?

    Thanks!

    Is there a short-cut in your Start --> Programs --> Startup folder that might cause it to open? If so, remove it.

    What folder is displayed when your PC starts up?

    So is there a short-cut to the folder in the Startup folder on the start menu?

    I can't see anything at startup that would resemble what my computer is doing.
