Windows 7: Computer folder keeps appearing after startup!

Computer folder keeps appearing after startup!

Hi there...

Just purchased a brand new Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 a few days ago. Just yesterday I noticed that eveytime I startup and logon, (My computer) folder keeps showing up... tried everything possible, (msconfig), diagnostics, tried all scans available including MSE Full scan & MalwareBytes. No Luck!
all scans came up normal, no viral infections or malware... + tried all the registry editing available...

the only scenario that this stops occurring is by running in safe mode!

Thnx...

System Specs:
Core i5 3210M
Intel HD 4000 + nVidia GT630M
6GB DDR3 1600Mhz
500GB HDD

Did you try to create a new user account for testing? Same problem with that account? You may delete the test account afterwards (from your current account)

However, this problem only happens during the first logon after startup, if I log off and log on again it doesnt happen.
Restart the laptop and its back at logon
