Carey you got bit by the same bug that bit me.

For example, when you cut & paste a URL from a web page that shows in a
Google search it doesn't work.

That is, a hyphen gets added to the URL when the viewer of your post
double-clicks the link.

In this case the hyphen is inserted as follows:
..../scr­-ipts_desc/...

So here is the link that works.

Check your settings here:

Start/Run/Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

In the right pane under Userinit - Change the key that reads:
C:\Windows\System32\Userinit.exe,C:\Windows\System 32\Userinit.exe
To:
C:\Windows\System32\Userinit.exe,

And also here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows.

In the right pane, check your settings under Load.

Note: This problem can be caused by a Trojan virus.

I have installed both fixes and checked the registry. Nothing unusual in the
registry. Still get My Documents on startup.

Oh my, how disappointing.

Now I am wondering about a possible virus/Trojan - or having to resort to a
Repair Install.

I'm afraid I am fresh out of ideas.

Keep pluggin'.

I have ran the spyware and antivirus scans and deleted what was found and
still My Documents opens on startup.
