Hi Guys,

I have been happily using Windows 7 for a while now, but recently whenever I click on folders such as My Computer, My Documents, My Pictures or Recycle Bin etc, they flash open for a split second and then appear open on the bar at the bottom where open programs are. If I click the icon of the now 'open' folder, it flashes for a split second again (just like it did earlier) and then the process repeats itself!

I have already tried the following methods which did not work:

1. folderfix.
2. Microsoft Security Essentials
3. autoruns.exe/auto24sw.exe

Please can you help me with this problem. Your feedback is much appreciated!
