    Never use a Registry cleaner unless advised by a professional, until more help comes along, I can suggest you do a System Restore to before you started your Clean up and see if this helps.

    Good luck

    What happens if you actually double-click the folder?

    The order of the action items on the popup menu doesn't matter... the HIGHLIGHTED item is the default action. As long as OPEN is still highlighted and the folders just open when you double-click them, don't worry about it.
