    Hello,
    I have a strange problem. Whenever I double click on a folder to view contents, it only shown the title bar of the folder, I have to drag on the corner of the title bar to resize it so i can see the contents. I have tried resizing it and shift clicking the x to save the size, but only works for a little while. then it starts again. It opens the folder as if it's been collapsed... the title bar is on the screen, but has to be resized to see contents.

    Try resizing the window then closing it via the File > Exit method.

    I tried that also. It works for a few minutes, but then it goes back to just the title bar. Also, it happens sporatically, and on different folders. Sometimes it works ok, then maybe the next time i open that folder, it might happen.

    Have you scanned for malware/viruses?

    You may also try scanning your system with HiJackThis and posting a log of the scan in the dedicated HJT forums here to see if anyone can find anything that shouldn't be there (which might be causing your issue).
