Please run hijackthis (see link in my signature), then save a log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post. We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this thread. I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.

if you have a dell comp, then it might have just reverted back to its default behavior somehow. I had hp comps on which the hp folder would just open up randomly after a certain amount of time. the hijackthis log would help, but I think all that is required is the following:

start, run, type msconfig
go to the startup tab (last one)
look for any entries that are just blank
uncheck them but dont touch anything else
