    :confused: My wife can not drag and drop files in Explorer on her office computer. She is able to highlight the files in the right pane, but can not move them. Is it possible drag and drop has been disabled? If so, how?

    Thanks Mosaic1, but what are these downloads? File utilities? Patches?

    DCOM is a set of files which will replace missing and damaged files which are preventing Drag and Drop (and possibly other functions from working properly)

    The reg file I attached will reenter the drag and drop entry into the rgistry if that is the only problem. It usually isn't, but it cannot hurt to try it.


    Sorry. I deleted my first post so I could add the attachment.
