Hello!

I am very new to the site, and I came across this topic on a google search. Everytime my computer boots up the system 32 window opens. I have read on running the regedit as well as an above note of downloading a vbs file. None of these work, or go along with my position. Help please!! :thumbsup: Thanks in advance!!

My neighbor's computer does the same thing and I can't find the fix anywhere. Would love to hear it though.

Go to: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm scroll down to #260, on the right hand column you will see System32 Folder Opens Upon Boot. Click on it and save the .vbs file to your desktop and then double click it to run.

It will be making a change in your registry, so create a restore point first just in case.

Here is a Microsoft Knowledge Base article on the issue: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=170086

Ok, I tried to run the VBS file and it said...

"the script cannot repair your issue. The expected registry value was not found."

Now what?

The Microsoft Knowledge Base article I liked to above speaks directly to your issue. Read the article, looking for the cure, and then let us know if you have questions or need help in understanding the article.

What is likely happening is that an unknown startup item is calling on a file from the System32 sub-directory (or just in the path if it ends at System32). When it can't find it, it pops up the directory where it last looked.

Try Autoruns from http://www.sysinternals.com to see if you can locate something that's missing.
