Some weeks ago I experimented with some DOS games and (wrongly thinking that I could get a different screen res with a custom desktop) I created a New User account for this. ie - log in as A for usual stuff and log in as B for DOS games.

I found it didn't work like this and so erased user B.

BUT - ever since that time I've been stuck with the folder contents of drive D (I have C, D and E(CD)) displaying on my desktop every time I start Windows.

I can't find any record of it in the RUN section of the registry - where should I be looking and how do I get rid of this!

Try this free utility to see the other areas that start when Windows loads: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

If this doesn't show it, then here's a more advanced tool (free also) that goes into greater depth: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx
