I assume you mean it's opening a window when you start the system.
Explorer always starts with Windows, it generates the taskbar, so it will always be present in Task Manager, but it shouldn't show any open windows.
What window is it opening?
:dubbio:

Windows Registry key: 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

Check if the variable: 

PersistBrowsers

has a value:

REG_DWORD:  0x00000000 (0)
