    I just did a fresh XP install on a new pc and I can't open more than one "My Computer" window. Whenever I try to open the 2nd one, it just takes me to the 1st one.

    Any other time I installed the os, it would let me open as many as I wanted by default.

    Maybe someone will post up the solution before I can locate a similar thread.

    Thanks

    WTF!

    Now my existing PC I am on right now won't open more than one!

    What the hell? All I did to it was remove two of the 3 drives(kept the boot drive) and yanked a 1 gig ram chip(still got 256k).

    It is doing what it is supposed to do. After opening one Windows Explorer just change your directory and then you can open another one.
