Default Windows XP start up

Can anyone help me with a slight problem i have, how can i prevent My Documents opening every time i start up? It only started happening after i installed SP2 and only when i log in, it don't happen when others log in. Its not in the Start up folder and i've checked MSCOFIG start up and its not in there, its proberly somewhere in the registry, i've looked using REGEDIT and found referance to it in a number of places but i,m not sure which folder it would be in, could anyone help?

click downloads up in the top banner. download and run hijackthis. look for an entry that states the folder that open on startup. check it and click fix checked.

you should prolly run a spyware scan as well.
