Windows 7: How to stop explorer windows opening in a new window?

You might be able to ease the problem if your dad will let you have your own User Account, and then you can set your preferences the way you want to (with dad's approval, of course) and dad can have his User Account preferences the way he wants them to be.

LOL

Try to tell him that there already is something wrong with the computer and ask him to read this post.

Show him what you see in yours and show him what it should look like.

It is possible to look through the registry for the values posted by Zardoc without changing anything. Just be careful not to double click any values and change them. If we know what the value is in your registry for opening folders, we can narrow down the problem that much easier.

Are you saying that the registry address (the exact address) isn't there?

If that's the case, then there is an issue for sure.

If your dad want's to, I can restore the key without harming the machine.

All he has to do is upload this file, double click and accept the commands. Reboot and retry.

P.S., Create a restore point before you run the command. Make sure that the system is virus free before doing anything

It's virus free now, but I can't do system restore. It's disabled.

This may sound silly, but why don't you enable it? That's an important tool to have running.
