I have a computer at work that whenever you log in under 1 of the 3 names on it, it always brings up the "System32" directory. Is this something to be worried about and how does one stop it?

Switch to a Mac!:yum:

What version of Windoze are you using? Does this user have special priviledges? (i.e. "Administrator").

Do you have a virus scanner and anti-spyware tool installed?

I suppose an admin might have set that to their home directory on purpose, but that is highly unusual. I'm thinking along the lines like PB, it very well could be a virus. Once a virus is in place very weird things start happening. Have you noticed anything else out of the ordinary on the box? What OS is it running?
