    I have recently noticed that the Finder window on my mac pro (OSX 10.5.4)
    sometimes is open when I boot up, even though it was closed when the Mac was turned off.
    Is this an indication of some problem or perhaps a virus?
    It never did this before.
    Why would the Finder window automatically open when the computer is started if it wasn't open when the computer was shut down?
    Thanks for any advice.

    Hi,

    Have you checked your login items? Perhaps the folder has been placed in there somehow.

    It's not a virus. Just something causing the folder to be opened.

    Thanks, I checked and there was nothing in there but some itunes item and an istat menu helper.
    I still don't know why my Finder window appears opened when I start the computer sometimes.
