Every time I start my computer up, the Common folder in C:\Program Files\Common comes up. Why?

There is nothing in the folder at all, so do I need it? Is there a way to tell the computer to stop bringing it up at start up? It is really quite annoying, it's bothersome to have to close the folder before I get started, plus it takes time to load up. Any suggestions? Thanks ahead of time!

    to remove that click on START>RUN

    in the RUN dialogue box type in MSCONIFG and press ENTER

    This should bring up a window, there is a STARTUP tab, click on it

    Inside the startup tab there is a list of items with checkboxes on the left hand side of those items, find the one that says C:\Program Files\Common and uncheck it, click apply and ok to close the window...

    The computer will ask you to restart, DO IT

    After you restart a window will show saying that you used msconfig, and etc... just check DON'T SHOW AGAIN at the bottom of that screen and you'll be all set :)

    cleaner > Analyze > Run Cleaner

    Issues > Scan For Issues > Fix Selected Issues

    if you do not have ccleaner installed, then Read Howto and Download free CCleaner from the link below

    One word Malwarebytes. Google search it and install it and I can bet money that it will find and remove it in a 10 minute quick scan.
