Cannot choose single/double click in explorer->tools->folder options

After re-install of Windows 7 Ult my mouse acts as though single click is selected. When I go to Tools>Folder Options double click is selected and single click is grayed out. I'm hoping to find a registry hack to overcome this problem. I am open to any and all suggestions. I really do not like single click.

By the way I have tried multiple mice with the same results

This should be the appropriate setting ... double click is selected by default, but you can change it to single click.
