Every time I start Windows, the D: folder opens automatically. Is there any way to correct this glitch without editing the registry? If not, can somebody point me to a good tutorial of editing the registry? I've never done it, and want to know what I am doing before I try.

Thanks, mv

Thanks. That did the trick. There was a program running in the background that was creating the problem.

ups, I got it wrong, I think it's msconfig that will let you change things (winmsd is just to see what's going on)
