Files not opening in Window

  chub_tor 16:55 25 Feb 2007

If I go to Start All Programmes then either double click or right click Open on a File eg Microsoft Office I used to see a Window open up containing all the files such as Word, Outlook etc. and I could drag and drop other files into this open window.

Now if I double click or right click Open nothing happens, no window nothing. I have run CCleaner, Registry Mechanic and RegscrubXP but so far nothing has fixed this niggling problem - and yes I have re-booted several times.

Any ideas, links anyone?

Thanks VoG I did as the link suggested to make sure that dragging and dropping was ticked and it was, but I unticked and re-ticked it anyway and lo and behold normal functions have been restored. Thanks again.
