Hi there everyone,

I have a problem with my XP laptop in the sense that once all the icons have appeared on the desktop after bootup, the System32 folder opens up to show its contents.

To get rid of this I simply have to X out of it, but it is quite annoying!

Does anyone have any tips / ideas on how to stop this happening?

Many thanks

Jon

this usually results from an empty startup entry.

Please download hijackthis from my signature, then save a log, zip it up, then ATTACH IT to your next post.

Please DO NOT POST IT--attach

What in the name of Harry Houdini....

I can see what is causing your pop up, but you have far bigger issues going on there. You got yourself one freaky log there, friend

I see one obvious malware infection still there, and a whole bunch of entries that don't even make sense. It almost looks like you've got a css stylesheet integrated into your registry.

We do malware in a different forum here so I am referring you to them--if the pop up issue continues, please return here (but they will just clear it in the process of the rest of the cleaning, so you should not have to).

Please go to the malware forum (find the link in my signature) and follow the instructions at the top, then post a log there.

I'm having the same problem but don't know enough to find the problem in the registry. I've attached my hijackthis log.

Can you help me please?
