Every time I start my dell 1100 desktop My documents folder opens and shows all that is in it automatically without me opening it. Is there a way to stop it from opening automatically when I start up my PC. I have checked the start up items by going to msconfig. but nothing is there about my documents. Thanks

Now having problems computer lost a driver so went to do a system restore and it says there are no restore points

Hi whojob -
With the system restore, can you go Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore , and look at the left side of the screen - There is an item marked System Restore Settings - Click on this and on the next screen there is a box near the top left side - This should not have a tick in it - If it does then untick it - This will have been stopping you from saving restore points - You should have restore points for all M/soft downloads as well as your antivirus updates - I hope you are running XP SP3 so that you can get M/soft updates still - That should be the easy part -

Next go to Control Panel > System (click on this) > Hardware (click) > Device manager (Click again) - Look down the left side for any items with an Alert symbol beside it and click on the + to open the device - If no item has a symbol beside it then one by one click on each + until you see the device that requires the updated drivers - Double click on the device and follow the advice in the box beside it to update your driver -
Do you know what driver is missing and how were you informed ??

Thank You -
