Windows 7: Folders automatically opening on start up.

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Folders automatically opening on start up.

From the past few days I'm facing some strange problem. When ever I turn off my PC without closing any folder, that folder is automatically opening on next start up. Can any one tell me why this is happening and how can I solve this problem?

I'm using Windows 7 X64 SP1 with all recent Updates.

Try the System Configuration Utility known as msconfig. Go to Start > Run, type in msconfig and click OK. When the utility opens click the Start up tab.

Look for your folders there, and if you find them, de-select them. Click Apply then OK. If you get a message to restart the computer you can do it then or later as you wish.

When you do reboot, you will get an information window telling you that you have chosen selective startup. You can suppress that window from within the window itself.

I don't know how this would have changed, but take a look in Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options >View.
