Folders won't open by double clicking

Are you saying John that this below doesn't work for you?

 

In WinXP, click Start, My Computer, Tools, and Folder Options. On the General tab, choose whether to open each folder in a new window and set how you want to select items (click or double-click).

 

EDIT

erm, it's a bug with the File Types thing(it was already set to open in same window). i messed around with them(changed the icon of the folder) and automatically, it makes it "Browse with IrfanView" since that's what there is...

 

if i want to open the folder instead, i have to right click and select open.

 

and also like i said, Tony Klein posted a solution to the problem(some website with a script to fix it) but i can't find it.

 

also, i just tried what that website told me to do and it still didn't work.

Glad you found the fix! I learned my lesson long ago when messing with Folders, and Folder Options such as adding right-click add-ons that inadvertently screwed something up, which is why I always create a registry backup first for a quick and easy undo of my actions.
