How to prevent XP System32 folder from loading at bootup?

I have encountered a few PC where everytime you restart the computer XP will open the C:\Windows\System32 folder on the desktop.  This gets very annoying after a few times.  I have checked for virus as well as spyware and the systems were cleaned.  I have also seen this on a brand new VAIO.  I have also searched the startup (MSconfig) to see if there might be something obvious.  I hope someone else has seen this annoyance and know how to fix this problem.

Thank you for your help.
