Explorer problem

i used the registry hack to make the libraries taskbar icon open to my computer and when my computer does open, when you click on any drive or folder it opens in a new window, sometimes 2 of the same drive or folder (even when i double click only once). anyone else experience this? if you open normal computer from like the start menu, it doesnt do this.

My advice is to just use it as it was intended and use your computer desktop icon for accessing explorer or the start menu or if you really want it in the taskbar just create a new toolbar and put a explorer shortcut in it.
