I have a pesky problem with a computer I am working on for a friend where here system32 folder opens on startup.

I have been addressing other issues with this computer in this thread in the Malware forum - http://www.geekstogo...ndows-recovery/

Any help would be appreciated.

If you look at the vbs file:

On Error Resume Next

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

X = WshShell.RegRead("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\SB Audigy 2 Startup Menu")
If X <> "" Then
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\SB Audigy 2 Startup Menu", "/L:ENG"
X = MsgBox("Finished! The System32 folder should not open on boot for this user.", vbOKOnly, "Done")
Else
MsgBox "This script cannot repair your issue. The expected Registry value was not found.", vbOKOnly, "Finished."
End If
Set WshShell = Nothing

It's making a change to the "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\SB Audigy 2 Startup Menu" registry entry.

A bit more info here: System32 Folder Opens at Login (/L:ENG)

Start System Configuration. Check the Startup tab and see if anything there looks like a possible source for this.

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter or click GO.

If nothing jumps out at you, try this: What programs are installed and what programs run at startup, XP, Vista and Windows 7, maybe we can spot something.
