Folder loads at startup

  CDL 15:08 27 Dec 2006

Hello ! Happy Christmas !

For some unexplained reason one of my folders has recently decided to load up and appears on the desktop at startup.

How can I stop this happening ?

I'm running XP Pro

Which folder?

Its the Bluetooth Software folde (Belkin)

See if it is listed in msconfig click here

Thanks for the rapid response VoG but no it's not listed in the Start Up list

Is it by any chance listed in Start/All Programs/Start up Folder? if so delete the shortcut.

  CDL 17:39 27 Dec 2006

No it's not listed in any of the start up folders

Any further ideas?

Try a restore

A bit drastic that one postie24 - I'm sure there's an easier way - just cant remember what it is !

Its the reverse of setting a folder to open at start up - whatever that is !

Nothing drastic about doing a system restore.It's simple and reversable.
