    File Manager opening at startup

    A few days ago, my file manager started opening at computer startup to a autoruns related folder. See the screenshot. The same thing happened briefly in early October to the same folder, but I don't recall how I get rid of it. I've been thinking the problem is related to Xyplorer, the file manager I mainly use, but after uninstalling it and rebooting, Windows Explorer opened to the same folder (Xyplorer reinstalled doesn't do it now). Why Autoruns and Logitech? Not sure. Obviously, I use Autoruns and I do have a Logitech webcam, but it's not currently hooked up. Any idea what might be going on and how to fix it? Win 7x64. Thanks,

    Check with What's In Startup. The Logitech registration loads itself in Startup. It can be disabled or deleted with this little app. This definitely looks the same as I was getting when I installed updated Setpoint S/W for my Logitech mouse.

    Thanks for getting me looking at it a different way. It wasn't SetPoint Event Mgr in startup, but literally what was being pointed to, the Logitech Registration link. I found it unchecked, hence disabled, in autoruns. So I checked it to see what would happen. On reboot, the file mgr is gone but a Logitech survey popped up. Going back to Autoruns, the entry is no longer there. Go figure.

    Yea, the Logitech registration stuff is somewhat in your face. I suppose this is good in a way. My Anywhere FX Mouse had to be replaced almost a year after purchase. Logitech offers a 3 year warranty, even on lower priced mice. You really can't beat that. It's worth the registration to get a replacement, no questions asked.
