OK lets now try a small batch file to delete any desktop.ini files which may be disrupting the link

A new standard desktop.ini will be recreated by windows if needed

Download this batch file to your desktop


Right click the file and select "run as administrator"
Once run there will be a text file at C:\Users\Paul called desktop
Could you post that

OK that confirms there are no desktop ini's in the folders

Found an MSFixit on my rummaging around that purports to fix a very similar problem to this.. Could you run the MSFixit on this page please http://support.micro...kb;en-us;321186

Hmm still an enigma this one... OK two tasks:

First download this reg file to your desktop
Right click the file and select merge


Now retry, if it fails then right click a subfolder and select open
Does that work OK ?

Hi,

That file just runs once i save it to my browser (firefox). There's no option to save it to the desktop. The right click open/explore on subfolders is still working as before.
