Windows 7: When I explore a HD in my computer = randomly open one

When I explore a HD in my computer = randomly open one

Hi!

Please excuse my english. I've just realized a strange bug, when I open "My computer" or just "Computer" in vista/Windows 7, when I double click or when I right click and then choose "open", it, most of the times, opens two instances of this hard drive. For instance, if I double click on the c: drive, it opens two identical windows with the content of C:

I've included the psr file, you can see that it opens two instances of the windows. Just unzip the file and open it and you'll see the problem....

Anyone has this problem?

Thanks!

have you made any shortcut items and put them somewhere?

Have you moved any special folders like your downloads, oic, doc, etc?

did it alway do this?

Run a system file checker (in search type cmd, then sfc /scannow)

Do you have a backup to restore?
