There's many different reasons for the folder opening on boot. The most common is that the system is looking for a program to start that no longer exists - and that program was located in the System32 subfolder.
The most common reason that I've seen for this is the incomplete removal of malware (viruses and spyware). Have you recently removed a virus or spyware from your system?
