Startup problem.

  The Bard 07:04 21 Aug 2010

Suddenly, when I bootup Notepad appears with the following [.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21787. I have tried the fixes recommended by Microsoft but they do not appear to work with Windows 7 Home.

This happens if the hidden attribute for the desktop.ini file is somehow removed. Follow these steps to resolve the problem:

Open an elevated Command Prompt window. To do so, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. Type the following command and press ENTER. (You may copy the text below and paste it in the Command Prompt window.)

attrib +s +h "%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\desktop.ini"

And then run the following command:

attrib +s +h "%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\desktop.ini"

Type EXIT to close the Command Prompt window.
