Try unchecking the option for "Remember each folder's view settings" in the Folder Options under Control Panel by doing the following:

Start >> Control Panel >> Folder Options >> View tab >> Advanced settings

"Remember each folder's view settings" is the sixth check box option from the bottom of the scroll list.

If the process suggest by CYB3R_NINJ@ dosn't work then restart your computer. See if now its its working or not. If now also it didn't work then check your antivirus program. It may be the effect of an malware. Install latest antivirus. I hope this will solve your problem.

OK, i did a google search and it doesn't appear that there is a registry edit or setting that you can manual configure to change the default size of windows when launching a new program or windows explorer window.

The best solution found was a free program called AutoSizer for setting the window launch size, which you can download and install on your machine.

Here is a location where you can download the file:
http://www.southbaypc.com/AutoSizer/

I have not personally downloaded or worked with this program, but it appears to solve the issue that you are having and user feedback indicates they are satisfied with the results. TweakUI allows you to change the number of custom Folder Views that it can remember, but i think AutoSizer will give you more control.

Please post feedback if this solves your issue to let others who have the same issue know that this is a viable workaround.
