    My documents folder opens at start up. I'v seen this now on two friends computers .After installing sp2 on XP. First I spent an hour playing
    with start up ,or folder options . Then half an hour browsing Google till I found the fix! Its a reg problem heres the link:


    http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts_d...ydocsopens.htm

    It works and I trust D. Knox 's advice ,but it does n't say what it fixes ? Has anyone else seen this or tryed ?

    Code:
    'xp_mydocsopens.vbs
    'Copyright 2004 - Doug Knox
    'downloaded from http://www.dougknox.com
    
    On Error Resume Next
    
    Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    
    SysDir = fso.GetSpecialFolder(1)
    
    SysDir = SysDir & "\userinit.exe,"
    
    WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\UserInit",SysDir,"REG_SZ"
    
    Set FSO = Nothing
    Set WshShell = Nothing
    
    MsgBox "The system Registry has been corrected.", vbokonly, "Done"
    looks like it changes a few files\renames them then does something in the registry?

    i didn't read his site just i planned to open that vbs file to see what's in it and firefox did that for me.

    basically it's adding a registry thing.

    Probably just a glitch in stupid microsoft's installtion program.

    just use that program i'd trust doug knox i've used a few of his programs they all do exactly what they're meant to.

    hey peat, i know you're not a dumb guy...
    so please excuse my dumb question
    but did you check the startup folder?
    M$ has a way of putting shit there that dont belong....
    i seem to remember something like this happening a while back
    but dont remember if it was related to SP2 or not
    i know i didnt need any reg fix or anything
    if i DO happen to remember (hey, it's possible )...
    i will post it
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
