    System32 Opens Automatically 5 to 20 Minutes After Startup and Login


    Any help with this issue would be appreciated, I'm open to some of the methods that I have tried before to help in diagnosing and fixing this in any way.

    A few months ago, about half a year ago actually, Windows 10 would automatically open the System32 folder 5 to 20 minutes after startup and login, it also opens up with the file names not in English, but in random characters instead.

    I have a screenshot:

    I'm not entirely sure what this is, either a rootkit, something I did, or what. It's not a big worry for me, I am able to close it down without it coming back up, but it's every time I startup and login. Overall it's general curiosity if it could be a symptom to something underlying and potentially dangerous.

    Again, any help as to a diagnosis and potential fix is appreciated and accepted.

    Thanks.
