Check and see if there is a copy of your My Documents folder in your start up folder. If there is a copy there, delete it if it is a shortcut (which it most likely would be there). I would think it strange if the actual folder was there, but just in case you can always move it out of start up and put it on your desktop.

Open My computer > "Tools" > Folder option > view tab>
Check/ tick mark " Restore previous folders windows at logon."

If problem still same then you can edit in registry key.
But, first you should take back up of registry.
Start > Run > type regedit.
Go to "Files" menu > Export and save the file.

After take back up you can edit -
Start > run > regedit > and find

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Win­dows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

On right hand pane find Userinit and double click to it.
Its value something like this

If any additional are there, you can remove it and restart the computer.

Have you used Hijack ..........?
Run msconfig and unchecked explorer.exe so it does not run at startup and this cured the problem, Will see how the pc works after this adjustment
