I have two laptops here running Windows XP SP3. After all Windows Updates are installed every time I reboot these laptops there's an Explorer window that opens directly on "c:\program files\Microsoft" folder.

Very irritating - and it's happening in two laptops, one a fresh OS install I just finished.

Any ideas?

Apart from the bug you found I'm loving Security Essentials, first the lightweight small installer and teeny tiny basic interface... and as a IT Pro I can't go past that price FREE. Beats managing hundreds of Antivirus subscriptions each year.




Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

It's a very good product actually. And it's still beta.
