when opening a folder it get opened in a new window
already tried through folderoptions but not helped.

Folders open in new windows when set to use same window - Super User

I had the same problem. Re-registering two dll's and rebooting solved it:
regsvr32 "%SystemRoot%\System32\actxprxy.dll"
regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"
when i click start\run\ type these above and click on them this it says

Module 'C:\Windows\System32\actxprxy.dll'
was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

For more information about this issue, you can search online for this error code.
