This tip will stop the libraries folder opening on start up.

I tried many ways to solve this issue and below is the solution that worked for me and will hopefully work for you.

  1. Go to > Start Menu > Run >
  2. Type: “regedit”
  3. Click “OK”
  4. Browse to the following path way by clicking on each folder on the left hand side.
    “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon”
  5. On the right hand side you will see Name: “Userinit” Type: REG_SZ and Data: “c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,userinit.exe” (This is what mine was).
  6. Double click on “Userinit”
  7. Now change the Data to: “c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe”
  8. Click “OK”
  9. Now reboot and this sh0uld help solve your issue.PS. Remember to not change any other data in regedit unless you know exactly what you are doing as this could cause serious problems and prevent your computer from starting.Click on any screenshot to see a clearer larger example.
