Whenever I start or restart my computer my windows 32 file is opened up on the desktop. I just close it an deverything works fine but this is annoying to me. I had a couple of worms infect his computer. BAckdoor and look to me. Both have been removed. Is this some left over from one of those two worms or can I turn it off to keep from doing that at startup. Pleae help.

You might want to take a look at your start up entries in MSCONFIG

(Start / Run / MSCONFIG)

On the startup tab... look for anything that you may find suspicious.

-This might include entries with no name... or something that resmbles rundll32 or the command to open that specific folder.

Let me know if you have any questions

You could also try going here and downloading "System32 Folder Opens on Boot", line 260, right hand side.
Save the file, double click to open. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
If it doesn't you'll know right away with a window stating so.
