Could you use MSCONFIG and post a screenshot of the list under Startup?

Well I was hoping id see something there that would catch my eye. Everything marked for Start Up looks legit.

Its got to be something in the registry but Im at a loss as to what if you did those checks posted earlier.
Do you remember what changes you did (ie software install, etc) before you first saw this folder open on reboot?

Here is something else to try if youd like.

If you dont already have it, download HijackThis, and install it. Reboot, your computer, and when the folder comes up, just leave it. Run HijackThis and select the first option to do a System Scan and Save Logfile. A log file will open after the quick scan. Then copy whats in the log file to a post in here.

I was trying to delete an empty folder from the desktop that wouldn't uninstall so I reloaded the program and then uninstalled it and the folder went away, it's not affecting using the computer, I'm now on a mission to get rid of it, so keep thinking, Please, you're my only option left
