Hard drive (c) folder opens at start up

  cdb 17:27 27 Feb 2005

This has just started happening and it is abit annoying. I've done a search but can't find anything particular to this problem.

Any ideas? I'm running WinXP sp2, amd xp1600+ processor and nothing new has been installed that I know of.

Have you checked All proggrammes>start up?

Have you used tweakui or any other power toy?

I haven't used tweak ui.
The start up folder shows Adobereader7 and something to do with my dvd ram drive.

It says it's for the my documents folder, will it work for the hard drive folder too?

Put your XP cd in the drive,and type " sfc /scannow " Your explorer.exe has been corrupted,and needs repairing.I found this happened on my PC when I was altering the text/colour of the XP " start " button,until I did EXACTLY as was detailed on another forum.

I don't have an XP cd that I know of. It's an Evesham PC
