    Check to see if there is shortcut of that folder in Start > Programs > Startup. If its there, then delete it.

    It can also be the work of a nasty virus named rontolbro.... Do you have a good virus scanner or it also closes when the virus run.. Make an antivirus disable with vb nowadays have become an easy job.. Just we have to find the services running or perform some study on the services......
