Folders don't open in 'My Documents'.

  Conny 16:07 10 Feb 2007

When I click on a folder in 'My Documents' instead of opening and showing thumbnails it calls up a 'Search' box. How can I get it back to the way it was? If I try 'Restore' I get the message, Restore was unable to make any changes to your computer please pick another date'. Restore is on. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Vog. Thanks for the link, only problem is I don't know how to open Registry Editor! LOL. As you may guess I am a bit of a novice. Can you give me a clue please?

Gandalf, feel a bit worried about them progs as there seems to be a few warnings with them. Are they entirely safe now?

Thanks to both of you for your help.

To open Registry Editor

Click on Start button. Select Run. Type Regedit into the box and then select OK.

Conny, If you are not aufait with the registry of your PC (not many people are) the manual fix is not for you. However the other is.
Click on your start button and your programme menu comes up, on the righthand side at the bottom there is "RUN" click on that, type,or copy and paste, regsvr32 /i shell32.dll into the dialog box, click OK and all should be well..

Once again, Thank You.
