"My Documents" Folder opens on "boot up"

  1. I'm sure there is simple solution to this, but I am baffled. Upon Windows reboot (XP Pro) the My Document folder is automatically opened. How do I disable this from happening ?

    Thanks in advance !

    Still Happening

    I followed those instructions and the data value in the registry was as described. No edits were required. Unfortunately I still have the problem.
    Thanks anyway, Any other ideas ?

    The only other thing I can think of is.

    Open any folder in explorer, and click on the tools menu. Select folder options, and click on the view tab. Make sure the "Restore previous folder windows at logon" is unchecked. Click apply/ok.

    If that doesn`t help, I`m out of ideas.

    Regards Howard :)
