    Windows 10 opens folder at boot; msconfig stuck at selective startup

    1. If I try to select normal startup in msconfig.exe, it doesn't stick; always reverts to selective startup.

    2. When I boot to the Windows 10 desktop, it always opens a Windows Explorer window at /windows/system/ which shows only a Speech folder in the right panel.

    3. Checking my BootManager using BCDEdit, I see this but I don't understand what the entries mean or whether any of them are connected to the problems 1 and/or 2:

    Windows Boot Manager
    identifier              {bootmgr}
    device                  partition=C:
    description             Windows Boot Manager
    locale                  en-US
    inherit                 {globalsettings}
    default                 {current}
    resumeobject            {657a150b-658d-11e5-99b6-8e17c296bef1}
    displayorder            {current}
    toolsdisplayorder       {memdiag}
    timeout                 30
    Windows Boot Loader
    identifier              {current}
    device                  partition=C:
    path                    \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description             Windows 10
    locale                  en-US
    inherit                 {bootloadersettings}
    recoverysequence        {6c229bec-6586-11e5-9bc2-4487fc95d11b}
    recoveryenabled         Yes
    allowedinmemorysettings 0x15000075
    osdevice                partition=C:
    systemroot              \Windows
    resumeobject            {657a150b-658d-11e5-99b6-8e17c296bef1}
    nx                      OptIn
    bootmenupolicy          Standard
    Any help appreciated.

    Couldn't there be other possibilities why the folder could be opening on the Windows start? Check task scheduler, and for any other programs that could be responsible for that, get a copy of CCleaner and take a look at your programs launched on start.. Just a couple more ideas to chuck at you .. (Sorry..)
