Possibly caused by an incorrect entry in the Registry keys that control programs launched at start-up.
The two main keys are:
Each named value within these two keys represents a program launched at start-up; each value's data holds the command to be executed.
If the command is blank or contains just a character in double quotation marks, this missing data can cause Windows Explorer to display the System32 folder at start-up.
Click start then run, type regedit and the press enter
Click file, click export, check the dot is in all for export range, name the file and save to a folder you create in My Documents
Locate either of the registry keys mentioned above.
Look carefully at each value in the right-hand pane. If the value's data is blank, contains only single quotation marks, or otherwise appears to be corrupted, delete the value. Repeat the process for the other key, then restart your system to verify that the problem Explorer window does not appear at start-up.
