AutoCAD opens a new file as well as the file selected from Windows Explorer

I have recently upgraded from AutoCAD 2008 to 2001. Now when opening a file from windows explorer (desktop vs the AutoCAD browser) and AutoCAD is not running. AutoCAD will startup and open a new drawing as well as bring up the dialog box for finding a file to open, which I cancel, THEN open the drawing that I have selected. I have not seen this before and am wondering what variable or option is causing to happen. I am also seeing two icons for the same drawing file in the Windows task bar.

Did you 'migrate' anything from the older version? Of was 2011 a clean OOTB installation?

Is R2011 fuuly patched and updated?

Scott,

 

See if also this happends if you startup AutoCAD from the standard icon?

cause if it does? then maybe you add some lisp to Startup Suite (APPLOAD)

or some function/lisp to other Autoloaded lisp files (e.g acad.lsp acaddoc.lsp acad2011.lsp)
