System 32 Folder on startup

Hi, I keep getting the System 32 folder opening when I boot up (or restart)
my computer. I've gone to Kelly's tweaks, but the script said it couldn't
repair anything since it couldn't find the proper value. I also looked
through the two hkeys in the registry but couldn't find any null ("") entries.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Julie

Restart after you disable your anti-virus, to see if that is doing it.

This can be caused by a blank entry, such as can be left behind by
an incomplete program removal, in the
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and/or
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run keys. It can also
be caused by an entry in these same keys that starts with a " / ."
