Hey all. so my 'My Documents' folder will not stop opening and taking the focus...meaning ill be talking online and would have to click back to the window to continue to type then it will steal focus again, making it incredibly frustrating. if i exit it out, it will open it back up in a couple mins. i have used almost every spyware and virus software and it isnt finding anything. if u have ANY suggestions lemme know PLEASE!! THANKS!!

Does the My Documents folder open when you boot your computer?
