I have XP pro and for some reason even though i have ticked open folders in same window in folder options all folders open a new window, also even if set to open as maximise in properties folders only open as smaller windows. Can anyone explain why this has started to happen

Couple of suggestions for maximising here click here I know dragging the window to full size (rather than clicking the maximise button) then holding the Ctrl key and closing the window works.

Can't find anything at the moment on your other problem but will keep looking.

Thanks for your advise "Big Elf" found solution there.
It was to go to HKEY_Classes_ROOT\Directory\Shell and change default to "none" instead of "explore"

Thanks again and have a happy new year.
