Does the setting change back in Folder Options?

by seanferd In reply to not working

That is, does it go back to "Open each folder in it's own window", or does the selection stay as you marked it, but just doesn't work?

Are you the Administrator for the computer, or are you at work or something where another Administrator has control?

Here is a .reg file for XP:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
