Some of our readers were experiencing this problem that when they boot their PC, the System32 Folder opens automatically in a new window on the startup. This is a common problem nowadays and is very irritating.
What is system32 folder?
System32 folder is an important folder that comes when the Windows is installed and is situated in ‘C:\windows\system32”. It contains several important files.
Causes of this problem:
As you may have guessed, this problem is not caused by any virus instead is caused due to a leftover pieces of an uninstalled program which causes problems in the Windows Registry. This problem is also caused if you have either a corrupt string value or a null value in one of your Registry entries.
Solutions to solve the problem:
Improper values in the Registry can lead to several problems, so if you want to do it manually then I would recommend that you take a backup of it (refer this post of mine, if you don’t know how to backup)
- Navigate to following keys
- Verify that all the values in these keys do not contain any incorrect or null value
