View Full Version : Folder opening at startup - Help PLZ!!

After recently upgrading the program system mechanic, I was asked to restart the computer to finish the installation... fine.. It did so, now every time the computer starts the system mechanic folder (folder not program!) is opened on my desktop, its not listedn under my startup folder, nor i cant find it in msconfig startup..

How to get rid of a folder that opens at startup?

Have a look under these two keys in the registry. Are you able to uninstall system mechanic then reinstall sounds like somethings come unstuck. when you reinstall it then make sure you uncheck every thing concerning startup when it is installing if it gives you that option??.have you looked thru the help files also are there any settings in the program itself you can uncheck.

Startup locations
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Run.
