Hello, marco_.

Note: This fix is from the site listed here:

We need to preform operations on your registry. Please follow these instructions to back it up and preform the fix:
  • Please download ERUNT and save it to your desktop.
    (ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)
  • Install ERUNT by following the prompts
    (use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)
  • Start ERUNT
    (either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)
  • Choose a location for the backup
    (the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).
  • Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked
  • Press OK
  • Press YES to create the folder.
  • Please open Notepad by opening a run prompt and typing in "notepad" and pressing enter, or navigating to Start -> Accessories -> Notepad.
  • Copy the text in the codebox below by selecting all of it and going to Edit -> Copy, or by pressing <Control> + C.
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
  • Return to notepad and paste the text in by going to Edit -> Paste or pressing <Control>+V.
  • Save the file to your desktop as "fix.reg" (including quotes)
    Note: You must include the quotes!
  • Double click the "fix.reg" file we created earlier on your desktop.
  • Accept (Press Yes) to any prompts you receive.
Reply back and let us know if it works :thumbsup:

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

My Documents Folder Opens Upon Boot - #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.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
