Check in the statup folder if you have shortcut to this folder...
And remove it...

this would appear not to be an AS/400 Question. Perhaps you should re post it under WINDOWS Questions

Here is the answer that helped me...

Edit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
                     For each Value, make sure that the string is valid, i.e., if the Value is ActiveMovie File Extensions, the string of this REG_SZ entry should
                     be ActMovie.exe /Check and not null. The string must always start with an executable file. If it doesn't, fix it or delete the Value.

The item I deleted was Client Access Wizard with a Null value.

This resolved my problem.

ok. I thought that. There's another way without editing register to solve this problem.
1. Login locally on PC using administrator user
2. Set in Client Access propiertis to show wizard at next reboot.
3. reboot pc
4. when the wizard show set not to  show it at next reboot
5. reboot pc

I'm not sure if that will take care of the problem.  I had turned off my wizard, but still saw the system32 directory until I made the registry edit.

You have to turn wizard on first. Reboot machine  and then turn it off. Then reboot machine again: the registry settings will be right.
