can't open the folders

Post by kozaartsolutions » Tue Jun 12, 2007 4:21 pm

hi
please help...  this thing is getting really annoying.
I can't open folders with the regular double-click. All the time I have to open them with right-click and then Open. If I double-click a folder it opens the search page with no results in it.

    Thank you in advance

You may have to edit registry to fix this, try the first solution in the first link to start with.
