And that's exactly what Cursorcowboy gives 2 possible solutions (a registry key or a line in win.ini to delete) and a general troubleshooting tool for! Just do it, and you might get rid of this nuisance.

If you've never used regedit, or don't know about win.ini, you'd better find some local help (a more knowledgeable friend or family member) to help you, maybe.

jj3, If you by chance have a Dell Dimension system having
a factory installed Creative Labs Audigy2 sound card, after an
unknown period of time and with an unknown trigger event, a registry
entry will be added that causes the System32 folder window to
open at system startup.
Open the MSCONFIG utility (Start/Run type in MSCONFIG click OK) and deselect (uncheck) the /L:ENG entry from
the STARTUP tab, click Apply, click OK and restart your computer.

HTH,
