When you open up the folder does it display any content on the right?
What Happens if you right click and click on open?

Downloading this to a folder you create in My Documents will do

http://www.dougknox....folder_open.htm

Usage: Download folder_open.vbs and save this file to your hard drive. Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file. A confirmation dialog will appear when finished. This script can be viewed in Notepad or any text editor, as to the specific Registry key and value that are updated.
