Hi, I've enclosed a screenshot of what appears after booting up. I'm hoping someone has an idea why & how to stop it. Thanks

The screenshot is normal.

System and system32 hold vital systems files. The operating system protects the contents automatically

I guess you have issues extracting zip formats

Download the EXE from here

Hi coxchris, my question was how to stop the display of the folder, not what it was about. I know it deals with operating system & normally is not shown.

narenxp & coxchris, I want to thank both of you for trying to help with this weird issue. I normally don't try system restore right away, hoping instead to find an answer to a problem. Since this thing was becoming a little annoying, I decided to give it a try & system restore took care of the issue. The folder does not show up on booting up. Thanks again! hipshot

If any startup problems are present, download System Explorer and open the Autorun tab. You can look at every entry and fix any start-up problems from there alone.
