Open any Explorer window, on the menu bar** click Tools > Folder Options... > View, check to see if you have "Launch folder windows in a separate process" activated.

**If you can't see the menu bar, click Organize > Layout and check (tick) the menu bar option first.

B.T.W, with Nod32 AV and Mbam installed you'll have one of the cleanest (safest) machines about!! I would just add WinPatrol to that, Scotty does what he says he will, a good little guard dog.

There is nothing wrong. Look at what fimble posted. Some programs may spawn another process of explorer.exe. Just check its running from C:\Windows.

Windows Explorer Opening On Boot
It wasn't always this way, but now when I boot the OS, W.E. automatically opens a window. I have gone trough the startup items in msconfig and the start menu's startup folder and haven't found anything related to it. Anyone have any ideas as to how to control this? __________________
