Recently the My Computer and MY Documents folders have been loading
on boot up. How do I turn these actions off during boot up?

Hi, it is possible the following setting is to blame -


"Control Panel" > "Tools" > "Folder Options" > "View" (tab)

(Then scroll down the list of settings to...)

"Restore previous folder windows at logon"


....if this box is "checked" then try "unchecking" it (then press the [OK]
button to save your changes and exit "Folder Options"). You should then
not see the folders opening on Start-Up.

However, you should also ensure that there is no "My Documents" or "My
Computer" shortcuts accidentally been placed in either of your "Startup"
folders :


"C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

....or

"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"


....you should also make sure all Window's Explorer windows have been
properly closed before shutting down Windows.

Tim gave you excellent advise and it should solve your issue.

What I am posting here is to tell you that you should never post your phone number
and address in these or in any other newsgroup. It can become a problem.

Happy New Year

Ditto. I'll go even farther and suggest that you should never use your
real e-mail address in a newsgroup.
