    After Restore, folder loads on Startup


    This is a problem on my laptop running Windows 8.1

    I recently restored, successfully, from a Restore Point but, now, every time I start the computer, the folder Recovery at Windows/System32/Recovery opens up. It contains a file ReAgent.xml . How can I stop this? Thanks for any advice.

    Well, it has now stopped showing that folder on startup. As it seems to have started after recovery from a restore point, I created a manual restore point. But whether that is the answer to the problem I do not know.

    If the SYSTEM32 folder opens in it's normally the result of a broken start-up entry or a virus.

    Thanks James. I'll do a virus scan and check the start-up entries. The problem does seem to have gone away though.
