Try rebooting.

If that doesn't work try clicking on 'My Computer'-- Tools-- Folder Options-- View tab and click the restore defaults tab--apply--ok.

Click on Start, Run then type

regsvr32 /i shell32.dll (note spaces)

and click OK.

Certainly a better option that re-installing XP :@)

Glad to hear it worked - thanks for the feedback - maybe tick as resolved?
