W7 start up mystery

I have a laptop running W7 Pro 32 bit. When it starts up, an instance of My Computer starts up, but I don't know why and it shoudln't!

I've looked in All Programmes, Start Menu - there's nothing in there.

I've run MSCONFIG and I can't find anything on the Startup tab.

Where else can I look to stop this, please. Any tips gratefully received!

This problem occurs when some programs modifies the Userinit registry key, or if there is a registry change in the Userinit value.

So need to repair windows registry key to solve this problem, change the Userinit registry key value to fix this trouble.

Follow the procedure given below to stop opening of my computer, my documents or notepad at windows startup.

1. Open Start menu >> Run or press window + r , this will open the run prompt

2. Type “regedit” ( without quotes ) and press Enter , this will open registry editor

3. Now, navigate to the following registry key in registry editor

HKEY_ LOCAL_ MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Win­dows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

4. Double click the Userinit registry key and set the value C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.e­xe, ( The comma at the end of the value should also be there ).

5. Exit registry and restart your computer to see the change into effect
