Well Hi everyone. I have a friend who has an annoying problem that he would like to eliminate.
I'm going to describe it as well as I can but it is going to be a bit sketchy and I'm not sure it's a "startup" problem or not.
When the computer boots into XP he gets a folder screen w/ the title of "application data"
In the view you see what looks like an echo of an execution set strating w/ an explorer icon then a paint icon then an xml icon
followed by what looks like execution code. like ;ord=1336518284
It's a long string of statements ending in a bunch of ini files icons with the form of 0x040c.
I know not the best description but it's all second hand.....
Anyways any one have a clue why it's doing the echo thing?
Clicking and closing the file does nothing.
Startup is clicked as normal in msconfig
One more thing, I asked him to click back in the folder and he just listed the folders shown not the actual folder title but it looks like it goes to "C:" from the folder listing (ie Docs and settings, program files, windows, dell, backup1)
so my current guess is its: c:/application data which also makes no sense to me since c: isn't showing an "application data" folder.....
Oh and the folder view has like 11 "pages" you can scroll to the right due to the length of some of the text strings.......
