..I have to right-click and select "open" to be able to, well, open(or explore) a folder! It's kind of a hassle. The only "tweak" I remember doing before this happened was changing the default folder icon(which didn't work!) in Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> File types -> File folder -> advanced -> Change icon. Help, please! :thumbsup:

Perhaps returning the system to a date before you attempted the change will cure it.

System Restore is a feature of Windows XP that allows you to restore your computer to a previous known working state in the event of a problem. This is done without loss of personal files or data such as word processing documents, spreadsheets, music, images, etc. This feature is enabled by default and runs in the background making backups after certain events happen on your computer. System restore functions are only available to an administrator of the computer, therefore if you are not an administrator, you will not be able to follow this tutorial.

Hi,
I was able to fix the problem by going to Folder Options, and a .reg file from another site. Thanks anyway.

Just out of curiosity, what site did you get the reg file from?
Regards,

Alan.
