Windows 7: Can't left mouse click to open folders. Any Tips?

Can't left mouse click to open folders. Any Tips?

If I create a folder on my desktop I can open that folder by double clicking on my left mouse button.

If I put ANOTHER folder inside that folder, I can't double click on the folder inside. Instead, I have to right click and select "Open"

Any tips?

Sounds like the file associates are messed up.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Try the lnk default

Thanks andrew! I just tried
folder - Folder protocol associations.

Didn't help.

Is there one of these that you think might?

One thing to add is that when I double left click on "Computer" and it opens up the window where I can see my hard drives, I CAN'T left double click on them to open them! I have to right click and select "Open." I have to do this with ALL files and folders in the drive from here on out.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again!
