Dear ITKE: After a boot up, under a limited user account, the Windows "system32" folder opens. I was told this could be due to an uninstalled program component trying to load. Then instructed to check the startup services and uncheck anything that I didn't want running. The folder started to appear after I reinstalled my printer, as I was having trouble with the printer spooler. (Somehow the printer spool became disabled - so under services> automatic then reinstalled the printer.) I would like to stop the Windows "system32" folder from appearing after boot up. Looking for help, JTK

There is a registry entry to fix this. See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/170086 for the edit that needs to be made. Good luck
