Folder Problem

Hi. I've been having a problem. When I open a folder and then open another folder inside this folder its contents open in a new window. Any suggestions to solve this?

Hi, welcome to the forums

You need to make sure that you've not accidentally set the following option (open explorer then click Organize > Folder and Search options)

If so then choose the top option then click ok and it should work properly.

Click on organize in the upper left hand corner, then select 'folder and search options', then select 'open each folder in same window'.
I hope this helps.

I cant even restore my system to a previous point. I get an error message. Also when I play flv files the explorer.exe stops responding.

Run a full scan please. The quick scan is not sufficient to detect all problems.

Your machine is infected and we need to know how badly and what with.
