Default Start menu folders popping up...

Hey guys, I recently fiddled around with some folders in the Start menu, and for some reason those folders which I fiddled around with now pop up every time I start up windows.

Anyone know how I can stop them from popping up??

Check and see if you accidentally moved the folders into your Startup entry in the start menu. If they are in there, they will start up every time your computer starts (hence the name). If that is your problem, either move them out, or right-click -> delete.
