Windows folder or the WIndows Explorer?


Try this:


Start>Control Pannel>Appearance and Themes>Folder Options then click on the view tab.

Under the Advance Settings find a thing saying:

Restore previous folder windows at login.

If that is ticked, then untick it. Reboot your computer and try it again. If you still have this prob

I did some hunting for this in Google, and I found this:

So its clear that you have some trojan or virus running behind.
Have you tried for those to fix with any anti virus or antispy software?


I think that this is a Spyware/Maleware case and you would have to do a posting in the Malware forums.
