hi, I did a reinstall of windows xp, every thing went ok, I went online after installing A/V and firewall and downloaded servise pack 2, my problem is when I get to my desktop, my document window pops up, I can close it ok, but its annoying to keep closing it every time I get to my desktop

In the My Documents window, choose Tools -> Folder Options. Select the
View tab, and find the line "Restore previous folder windows at logon".
Uncheck it and see what happens.

I downloaded the script from Doug knox from my own pc, the pc I was going to run it on the pc with the pop up, but when I booted up and got to the desktop it didn't pop up, so I restarted the pc about 6 times and it hasn't happened again so far, I've just tried it again this morning and I'm happy to say my documents pop up didn't happen, I googled it and apparently it happens when you install service pack 2, I will keep the script for doug Knox just in case, thanks for all your help
