Desktop Folder Open on Reboot

  1. Would love any input I can get.

    Every time I reboot my computer, my desktop folder opens. System restore didn't work, and I've checked msconfig and don't see anything that would cause that to happen. I'm running Vista. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but neither worked for me. Couldn't find anything that executed the desktop folder to open.
