  1. System32 Opens Automatically 5 to 20 Minutes After Startup and Login


    Any help with this issue would be appreciated, I'm open to some of the methods that I have tried before to help in diagnosing and fixing this in any way.

    A few months ago, about half a year ago actually, Windows 10 would automatically open the System32 folder 5 to 20 minutes after startup and login, it also opens up with the file names not in English, but in random characters instead.

    I have a screenshot:

    I'm not entirely sure what this is, either a rootkit, something I did, or what. It's not a big worry for me, I am able to close it down without it coming back up, but it's every time I startup and login. Overall it's general curiosity if it could be a symptom to something underlying and potentially dangerous.

    Again, any help as to a diagnosis and potential fix is appreciated and accepted.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.


    • Form when are you facing this issue?

    • Did you make any changes prior to this issue?


    I suggest you to perform Automatic repair and check if it helps.

    Booting to Recovery Environment with Windows 10 installation media.

    This is an alternate way to boot the PC and run recovery tools when something goes wrong with the Operating system.

    Please follow the steps given below. Insert the Windows 10 installation DVD in the DVD ROM and restart your computer.

    a) After you boot your computer using Windows DVD or System Repair Disc, a black screen appears with gray text "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD". Press any key.

    b)Select the correct time and Keyboard type.

    c) Click Repair your computer
    in the lower left corner.

    d) Select Troubleshoot
    from Choose an option screen.

    e) Click advanced options
    in Troubleshoot screen.

    f) Click Automatic Repair
    from Advanced Options screen.

    g) Windows will then look for problems on hard drive(s) and verify that all required files are intact.

    To download the windows 10 ISO refer the link below

    About 5 minutes after startup, the computer opens to Windows(CSystem32 Opens Automatically 5 to 20 Minutes After Startup and Login :)>WINDOWS>sysWOW64.

    Nothing else happens,it is easily closed, but its annoying. I know sysWOW64 runs 32-bit programs.

    How can I stop this from opening?

    Best regards
