While booting, i find My Documents to be opening up automatically after the pc starts. Why is this happening?? Is this any kind of virus?? I'm using XP

Ummm, click on start, then click on all apps if you left it default, but either way, go to "Start Up" and see what's in there, you nay have done it yourself adding it to the start up.

Please check these links:
I think that it is a userinit problem and you need a registry fix. I don't think you will see anything in startup if that is the case.

Thanks dude's , thank you a lot. But i did find that there was some virus doing the menace, about which i've posted on the miscellaneous security discussions forum.

You should download Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware. It will detect and remove most any virus for free. Also they work with your existing Antivirus program.

What is implied by this is that MalwareByte will allow you to install and scan without the requirement of uninstalling your prefered antivirus product.

These are also part of my usual virus/spyware treatment to a PC... but I am very thorough.
