windows/system opens when win98 boots

551 Views 3 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  columbo
Every time I boot up, windows sarts and the windows/system folder opens. I have not made any changes or had any problems lately. And this dosn't seem to be much of a problem, just an inconvience. Just like to know what might be causing it and if I can stop it.

Thats weird. Did you check your startup folder to see if somehow a shortcut to c:\windows\system landed in there?
I checked startup and it is empty. I checked system info/software enviornment/startup programs and dont see anything out of the ordinary. Here is what I do see:

Data LifeGuard Common Startup Group "C:\Program Files\Data LifeGuard\8263142\Program\backWeb-8263142.exe" -startup

It doesn't look like anything in your reg is causing the problem. The only suggestion I can think of would be to get rid of any user profiles on your system, and then re-create them. That might get rid of the problem. You could try removing those two entries (Quicktime and 3cmlink) that point to your windows\system folder, but I don't know why they'd be causing the problem.

Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance:confused:
