Windows 7: Windows Explorer (My Computer) opens/pops-up every startup

Windows Explorer (My Computer) opens/pops-up every startup

Bought Lenovo Y480-Windows 7 just days ago and installed 3DS Max, Cad, Adobe CS6, Microsoft 2010. To counter the problem for whatever spyware, I installed Microsoft Security Essential, CCleaner and I have McAfee. But I think the problem occurred when I installed Adobe CS6. Just so you know, I've tried everything -- Tried "regedit", tried "msconfig", I tried placing missing symbols -- I called my I.T. friend. Windows Explorer/My Computer pops-out every time I open my laptop. Is this a bug from the new Adobe?

Download and run this utility:

Autoruns for Windows

Go to the Logon tab and post either a screenshot of the entries in there or save it to a text file and paste that here.

Hm, nothing in there appears to stand out as something that would launch an explorer window upon startup. What makes you think it's Adobe CS6?

Because this problem occurred after I installed Adobe CS6.

Are you absolutely certain it only started after CS6 was installed? If so, you could try a system restore to a time previous to the CS6 install and see if that fixes it.

Could it possibly be connected with the fact that there are two AV progs installed MSE and McAfee. Would there not be a conflict there? McAfee has caused loads of problems recently as Google will confirm. I would uninstall it . MSE is so much better than McAfee anyway IMHO

Hm.. I bought my Lenovo with a McAfee installed already. My friend told me to install WSE when I told him about windows explorer problem, unfortunately didn't solve the problem. Now I'm confuse if I have to restore this to factory settings. It's so hard to re-install everything again.

have you tried a system restore as advised above?
You say "It's so hard to re-install everything again" Why is it so hard. Do you not have the installation discs?

He should have told you to uninstall Mc Afee first!

Not all the discs are with me and some drivers are really hard to find, not with the help from an IT friend. You see I'm a little stupid when it comes to these things. I thought this problem could be solved just a google away.

Anyway, still open to the last resort.
