Hi Juan,


I tried replicating your problem and for the life of me, I haven't been able to make it happen on my PC.


Perhaps someone else who's been following this thread can supply an answer.

  • Help: Win Xp explorer --> View --> Explorer Bar - Folders

    I had the same problem and it was discovered that the default folder action was set to explore, instead of open. To change, from windows explorer, click on Tools, Folder Options, and then the File Types tab. Find (NONE) Folder in the list and highlight it. Click the Advanced button. If you issue is the same as mine, explore will be bold. I changed it back to open, by clicking on open, then clicking the Set Default button. Open should now be bold. Click Ok to close the windows...

    I hope this fixes your problem.
