Angry

Why does a window always pop up when i start up my computer?


Hello,
I need help with something on my Windows XP. Whenever I start up the computer, and it is finished loading, a window pops up every time, it's always the same window also, and it really bugs me because every time I turn on the computer I have to close it. So do you know any ways to make it stop popping up and ways to prevent it from happening again? Please write back.

-Andrea

What is the popup? What does it say?
If it is a software program error, then we would need to know what the error says.

Andrea, when the window next pops up, click on "Restore Defaults" and then click on OK. Let us know if that fixes the problem.....

Hi Andrea, the "Restore Defaults" button is located at the bottom-right of the panel. Of course this is assuming I've pulled up the correct window you are referring to.

Just to make sure, I went to Control Panel > Folder Options > Select the View tab. Is this the window that pops up?

The Window that pops up is this one....you know when u go into control panel and you can choose whether or not you want to view the hidden files of a folder? Thats what pops up except its the folder that shows the files not the one that asks if you want to see them. I tried the restore defauts thing and i'll see if it works next time i turn on my computer if it works thank you very much but if it doesn't its ok! I hope this doesnt confuse you!

I'm sorry but I can't figure out what window you are referring to. Can you take a screen shot and send it to me via email?

OR....

If someone out there recognizes the screen Andrea is having a problem with please put in your 2 cents worth

Instead of sending you the screen shot i'll tell you how to get there. i found another way. Go to My Computer then click on Local Disk (C:), then click on WINDOWS. That's the folder that always pops up when i log on to my computer.

OK, so on the top of the popup in the blue area it reads: C:\Windows right?

If that's correct now look at your startup folder. Are there any references to windows explorer there or shortcuts pointing to the C:\windows folder?
