    Good morning TPU,

    Well the title is the problem as you can guess.

    Basically, from what the user told me is this: They did a virus scan. After they got rid of some crap, the My Documents would open as soon as Windows XP is loaded.

    Its a P.O.S lappy that needs a reformat bad. It basically been mySpaced and "I know who sent me the email, so I opened it" to hell.

    If i can just solve the My Documents issue, I'll leave it at that. I don;t feel like reformatting and installing Windows again over my Thanksgiving Break.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Happy Thanksgiving TPU!
    -Andrew
