Everytime I try to open a folder e.g. My computer, My documents and any other folder.
When, I click on the folder it does not open instead my computer flashes up my background and then it goes back to how it was without the folder opening. Everything else works fine like .exe files but folders don't work and I do not recieve any error messages about it.

thehowlinsnake,

What happens if you right-click on a folder?

Go to any folder's menu (if you can) and click on Tools - Folder Options. What is the Click Items as Follows option set to?

Regards,

Felix

Right click open does not work and folders are set to double click.

So still appericate help.

thehowlinsnake,

Is your double-click speed too fast? Try altering the setting in Control Panel - Mouse - Buttons.

Regards,

Felix
