    You can try the following registry fix:

    Start Registry Editor, locate and then click the Default value under

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

    Click Modify on the Edit menu.
    Type none in the Value data box, and then click OK.
    Quit Registry Editor.

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


    Open regedit and navigate to:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

    and

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell

    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
