My Documents open at start up

To solve this problem:-

1.Start>Run>Regedit>ok

2.Now navigate to the following key:-
HKEY_ LOCAL_ MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Win­dows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

3.Look down the list in the Right Hand pane,scroll down to the value Userinit This value should read: C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.e­xe, (The comma at the end must also be there)

4.If the value is different from that mentioned above then Right Click on the Userinit value and, from the drop down menu, select Modify. Type in the value C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.e­xe,in the Modify dialogue box click OK

5.Exit the Registry.Restart your computer.
