Hi, Probably something I have done, or I have just had a Win32/PEPatch virus/malware, now cleaned out, has stopped some of my essential Desktop Icons opening with a double/click of the mouse, i.e. Recycle Bin, Control Panel, and a Tools icon I keep all my handy cleaner programs in. How can I get them to work open again with the mouse. I am not afraid to go into the Registry and change something, as I know to back up the Registry first. Thanks, grifval
HI brundle What a great site. I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for though. I think there is a setting in the Registry to open the programs from the Desktop Icons, I just need to know where itis, and what to set it as. I think it was altered when the virus was cleaned out of my PC. Thanks again grifval
Hi 'The Raven' Thanks. I followed the steps, but all entries in my Regisry were already there. I think that was to put a Recycle Bin on my desktop, but I already have the icon, it just won't open with the mouse clicks. grifval
Since you can open the programs from the right-click menu then the obvious thing to check is the double-click speed for the mouse in Control Panel. This may have been increased so you can't double-click fast enough.
