If I understand what you are saying your problem is just open Windows Explorer, click on Tools, Folder Options, under Browse folders select Open each folder in the same window.
Oh, ok I tried that first, it doesnt change anything, it is set to open in the same window, but it still opens a separate window all the time


What I recommended is the default setting. Perhaps you should doublecheck.


HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ Directory\ shell

when you click on the folder next to shell, it should read in the right pane

Default REG_SZ none

(not an empty string, but the word "none")

Do you have any subkeys under shell apart from "find"?
I have the following subfolders under shell
Scan with Ad-aware
Winamp Enque
Winamp Play

in the right pane it says:

Default REG_SZ explore

should I set the value back to none?


These are all under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ Directory\ shell not under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ Folder\ shell?

If so, first right click the key, choose export and save it as a backup, just to make sure.
Then change the default value for shell to none and delete all subkeys apart from find .
