recently, when i try to open a folder it opens in a new window. it opens in the same window if i have the folders open on the left side of the window but if i just try to double click to open the folder it will open in a new window. how can i change it so that when i try to open the folder it will open in the same window?

In Explorer select Tools, Folder Options and then in the General tab check Open each folder in the same window.

There's a registry fix at Kelly's Korner for this. It's on the right at number 209 here.

Warning: Modify the registry at your own risk.

I'm sorry but I'm not aware of any. If you back up your registry following the link that fozzie gave and set a new Restore Point before making any changes I think you'll be okay on the slight chance that something goes wrong.
