    I have windows xp home edition and everytime i start up the computer, my System32 folder always pops up. It's annoying...

    Does anybody know how to fix this?

    run the 'msconfig' program. check for an entry that is starting 'c:\windows\system32' without an application name (i.e. just the directory name). disable the entry.
