Hi, Every time I right click on a folder then pick properties a box pops up saying

(RegOpenKeyEx: The operation completed successfully. )

I click ok then folder opens with properties. This just started doing this for about
a week ago ? I went to Folder Options then View and do not see anywhere to
turn this off ? does anyone know how to turn this popup off ?

Thanks
Dwight

it may be one of widows updates causing the problem..
first thing to try is system restore...go back about a week before the problem started...

If that doesn't work, try to do a repair on xp...the downside to this is...you'll have to reinstall all the critical updates from windows updates all over again...

Hey thanks for the help. Running Vista Home Premium with sp1, still no joy.
I will run this way for a while, it's not that big of a deal and I can live with it.
I will put it back to the way it came from the factory when I have the time.
Lenove has a oneKey Recovery that will perform system recovery to
C partition back to factory default, I have done this many times.
I keep a up to date back up of all my files and will just have to reinstall all my
programs. Some times there just is not a quick fix on things.

Thank you so much

Dwight

your welcome...and thanks for letting us know...
when you put it back to the original configuration ...only do a few updates at a time and test and make sure the problem didn't come back before doing another batch of updates...
