Windows 7: Can no longer select multiple files

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Can no longer select multiple files

Hi Graham,

in the folder you want to multiple select ie. Pictures, click on Organize, click Folder & Search Options, in View tick USE CHECK BOXES TO SELECT ITEMS. Worked for me.

The fact that you say it tries to perform the function but then stops in mid-function means, to me, that something is interfering with the operation. Have you installed anything recently or changed any system (or other) settings recently that might be conflicting with this function?
