    Stop starting your computer.

    Sorry... couldn't resist.

    Specifically, what Win32 operating system are you using? 3.1, 95, 98, or what?

    Whoa... XP has a sys32 folder... who knew?

    Well obviously I'm not going to be that knowledgeable about stopping the folder from showing up in XP since I didn't even know it was there, but have you checked the obvious places like your startup folder? And then there's the registry (regedit.exe) - but if you go poking around in there, just... you know... be careful...

    Sorry I couldn't be more specific - I've only ever had to do something like this on 3.1 and 95/8.

    Have you installed any new software/hardware lately?

    Look in

    Code:
    Start -> run -> regedit
    
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    this is what is starting up on Computer. Also look for CURENT_USER ... all the same.

    For NET hmmm. Do you have all the protection.
    Do not surf with IE. (surf with Opera or Firefox)
    Some Anti Spyware like Ad-aware or XoftSpy.
    Some Antivirus like Symantec or McAfee.
    Some Firewall like ZA -> Zone Alarm.

    Then computer works like a charm.
    You get some virus or something like that!

    Look for these keys in your registry and after backing it up delete them:
    HPPPT.EXE key, HPSJBMGR.EXE and HPPPTA.EXE.

    If these keys don't exist try this:

    Go to:
    BACK UP THE REGISTRY.
    Delete all keys BUT this one:
    Key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Run
    Value: SystemTray
    Value Type: REG_SZ
    Value Data: SysTray.exe

    Run->msconfig and look at the various items under the tabs (specifically the startup tab).
