Click on Start/Run and type regedit and click ok. Then navigate
to Hkey_local_Machine/software/microsoft/windows nt/current
version/winlogon. In the right box go to "Shell" it should read "Explorer exe windows\system32\system32.exe"
Right click on Shell open modify and delete the part that reads "windows\system32\system32.exe". You want to end up with just "Explorer.Exe" Then reboot. If the registry entry already contains just "Explorer.exe" then your problem lies else where.As a precaution always back up the registry first

Hi,

If as Pancake suggested above, the problem lies elsewhere, run each items in the "Startup" group one-by-one and if the System32 folder opens you will know which shortcut is bad. Either fix the shortcut and if program was removed, simply delete the shortcut by right clicking it and selecting "Delete"
