I have recently done a Win 7 O/S reinstall. Now,when the computer boots up it opens on Windows Explorer page instead of the Desktop. Can anyone tell me what's going on here? Help please potchboy

Here are instructions with screenshots for W7 of what to alter to Fix Windows Explorer Window Opening on Startup

Take notice of Method 5 which is to delete a registry key, you may not think you have IE5 installed but you could be in for a surprise.

HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
