Can't select multiple files in explorer

I have a two week old install of Windows 7 Pro. I'm not sure when it started but I cannot select multiple files or folders in exlorer. I know this was an issue with Vista that could be solved with a reg key edit but I have not been able to find a reference to the problem with Windows 7. Any input would be appreciated.

Hi, Welcome to SF,

I guess it works fine in mine. Maybe you could check this article Select multiple files or folders

Hope this helps,
