How to stop explorer windows opening in a new window?

Hi guys,

This has been getting on my nerves recently, because every time i click on a folder etc. it opens in a new window.
It is an new pc with windows seven on it.
I have had 2 viruses if that helps.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Folder Options. Under Browse folders, you'll see your two options.

I assume you got rid of the virus?

Hi, if you go in regedit
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell and you see OPEN in right pane that's wrong. Double click the key and delete open.

Try again.
