Hello all.
I have been having an issue for the past couple of days. I cannot open my downloads folder. Since I'm using Chrome, this is a bit of a problem. Every time I open it, Windows Explorer restarts. It does not reopen the folder, however. I have run virus scans on the folder and my computer and found nothing. I have a x64 bit Windows 7 computer. It is a Compaq with 4 gigs of RAM.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Just for an experiment, can you copy this downloaded folder to another folder, say a Temp folder or one that you created for yourself, if yes, then try opening your downloaded folder from there.
This is just a test to see if your "Downloaded folder" might have some special Administrative rights or not.

Good luck
