Open Windows Explorer or My Computer.

Click on Tools, Folder Options and on the General tab, click on Single Click to open an item.

Sorry Batch, But i cant seem to see any of those options, It is probably me not looking hard enough. I forgot to say it was XP.

To change the number of mouse clicks required to open items
Open Folder Options in Control Panel.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Folder Options.
On the General tab, under Click items as follows, click the option you want.

If you click Single-click to open an item (point to select), you can also specify when icon titles are underlined.
To check your current browser settings for underlining links, open Internet Options in Control Panel. To open Internet Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, check the setting for Underline links.

This is a direct quote from Windows XP built in Help and Support Centre searching for single click mouse.
People tend to forget its there.
