I very recently had a c: drive failure, with a replacement from Dell. WinXP reinstalled itself, and I have spent many days reinstalling all of my programs, with some of the usual problems of serial numbers not being accepted, etc. Most of those issues have been resolved.
However, one unexplained behavior persists. Upon opening XP, I get an open window displaying the folders in the C:\Program Files folder, although I never clicked on the My Computer, Windows Explorer or other source that would open such window. I have since examined the Startup folder, MSConfig and the usual suspects but have not found the reason this folder keeps opening on startup.
It is not a major problem, but I would like to have it stop. Any thoughts?
