    System 32 folder


    when I start up my Laptop windows 10 boots up the system 32 folder and opens it.
    tried all the links with google search but most pertain to windows xp and below..

    Ran SFC /SCANNOW
    and also Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth it found and repaired any files
    per the log ...I have a
    HP Pavilion g7-2320dx Notebook PC
    Runs great except for that system 32 file opens every time

    Thank you for any help

    This may not be relevant..................

    Right click at an open spot of your taskbar > Task Manager > click Startup tab at the top.
    By any chance you have system32 on the list ?
    If yes, right click at it > Disable.

    I have no "easy" solution for this.
    Someone else likely has better ideas than mine.

    I can only suggest doing a Repair Install.

    Download and run 'Autoruns' from Sysinternals to see if you can pinpoint a corrupt entry.

    beady,
    Bite the bullet.
    Backup files you want to keep.
    Do a Clean Install.
    Start Fresh.
