Windows 95 Taskbar???

Windows 95 Taskbar???

Windows 95 Taskbar???

I have a user who every time they log in to the network multiple openings of their C: drive show up on the taskbar. There is no set number sometimes 2 sometimes twelve. I have looked in all of the normal startup places to see if something is loading these things on the task bar. Any suggestions??????

RE: Windows 95 Taskbar???

By looking in the normal startup places, did you also look for blank registry keys in HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run ¦ RunOnce ¦ Run Services... I have mistakenly skipped over a blank key before...

Also, does this only happen when logging into the network? What happens if you bypass the network login or startup with the computer disconnected from the network. If you do not get any folders opening might need to look into the login scripts. What type of network are you on?

Let me know what you consider the "normal" startup place to see if I can come up with anything else... What shows up if you Ctrl-Alt-Del right after startup? Does it show anything running? If that doesn't show anything, try using a program called, I think, TaskMan2000, its a task manager to show all running processes in Win95 -- you should be able to find it on winfiles.com.

Hope this helps,
