    Good Advice yoyo, but may I suggest that value goes in two locations?

    Open regedit and navigate to:




    and give both the value of: None
  6. Thank you

    I tryed fixing the reg files, Then I had an idea I installed Powerdesk 5, it gave me back the file folder option after I uninstalled Powedesk 5 I could then again open folders with the standard windows explorer.

    Thank you all for your suggestions
