Windows 7: Issue with multiple user folders and folders opening in new windows

Issue with multiple user folders and folders opening in new windows

Hi there, well I finally got so frustrated that I decided to ask for some help.

My problem with my system is a very odd one.
Let me set up a situation.

I have all folders showing in my navigation pane

I'm on the desktop
I open my user folder
that works just fine
Name:  folderpane1.PNG
Views: 1
Size:  16.2 KB

Next I double click say, My Documents (anything will work in this case)
It opens in a new window.
I have the options for folders in a separate process unchecked, and open each folder in the same windows is selected

Now here is the weirder thing
I have TWO user folders in my navigation pane
Name:  folderpane2.PNG
Views: 3
Size:  18.3 KB


For future reference in this post, first and second user folders are defined as in this picture
Name:  folderpane4.png
Views: 2
Size:  22.9 KB
If click the second one it navigates to it, and then if I click a subfolder of the second one, it opens in the same window.

If I'm in a subfolder of the second one, and I click a subfolder of FIRST, it opens in the same window!

If however, I click the FIRST user folder, not a subfolder of it, it either open in a new window or brings the windows its open in to focus.

And lastly, if I click any other folder in the tree thats a subset of "Desktop" (computer, homegroup, etc.) while in either a subfolder of the first user folder, or the second user folder (and its subfolders) it opens in a new window (or focuses on the window if its already open)

Does anyone have any advice how to fix this?
It is not cause by the tabbar I have by the way. That was installed recently, and I've been having these problems for probably...6 months at least.
Please help me!
