Windows 7: Windows Explorer opening at start up

Windows Explorer opening at start up

A windows explorer page is opening whenever my system boots up. I am running Windows 7 Premium Home 64 bit on a Toshiba laptop. This is a recent occurence but I cannot find what is causing this. I have checked the msconfig and nothing seems to be directly causing this. I have also checked the startup folder and the issue does not appear to be there either. Any help would be appreciated.

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? __________________
