i suppose it all depends on how bothered you are by the explorer window opening, and how much time/effort you are willing to expend in finding a solution.
I tried with my fingers crossed, as you suggested with no positive results. Explorer still loading on boot. It is just the fact that something besides myself is making something happen on my computer... not a big deal I guess... just aggravating!

Perhaps Autoruns will show something that msconfig is not? It's worth a shot imo.

I'm not familiar with Autoruns and its a lot to take in so I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Perhaps you could help with the results? [attached]

If there are any other suggestions later, my ears & thread are open for additional help! I'll just keep things the way they are until something else comes up with a solution. Thanks again.

Have you looked in the startup folder (Start, All Programs, Startup)?

Yes, nothing in the startup folder but Bluetooth.

Just something I found from an old thread (here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...n-startup.html)

PLEASE read the thread first, before you go and do the below. The issue is not identical to yours, but it's similar. I'll leave it in your hands whether you want to do it, (although the fix provided is perfectly safe)

Look in the right pane, there will be an entry called Userinit.
Change the value of Userinit to C:\Windows\system32\userinit.exe

severedsolo, I gave it a try and it seemed to have solved the problem! Everything seems to be functioning properly now that I changed the value for registry entry, 'Userinit'. I thank you for bringing it to my attention and Bill2 for the original post. I am very grateful!
