Pop-Up Window At Start-Up

Hocam asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-29

I have a window that pops up everytime I restart. This window is just a regular window with some folders in it. I checked 'Start Up' folder to see if it was there, but it is not and also none of the applications is causing it to open.

Do you know how to turn it off? or where do I go in the System Registry to turn off such things?

Also, do you know any program that makes your ADSL go faster?

I appreciate your help,
Thank you,
