Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

My Documents Folder Opens Upon Boot (for C:\) - #255 on the right.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Actually, I'm not really sure why it happened. It could be due to some corruption somewhere. These things just seem to happen. It's kind of like when your toaster makes perfect toast every morning for 5 years and then all of a sudden burns it one day. :thumbsup:

I really like CCleaner and I use it all the time. However, I do not recommend using the registry cleaner function (the second button from the top marked Registry). I'm sure many members of this forum would agree with me when I say that registry cleaners are likely to cause more harm than good and should be avoided all together.
