After installing some patches last year I had a pain in the arse issue with Windows 7 where each time I clicked on a folder explorer opened a new window. The folder settings were set up to do the oposite.

I got so pissed off with it I did a system restore and stopped Windows Updates.

Tonight I figured I should update my PC and also fix the issue if it recurred again.

So after 92 updates the problem was still there. I ended up fixing it as follows

Copy this into notepad then do a save as and called it something.CMD

:: 32 bit and 64 bit
IF EXIST "%SystemRoot%\System32\actxprxy.dll" "%SystemRoot%\System32\regsvr32.exe" "%SystemRoot%\System32\actxprxy.dll"
IF EXIST "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll" "%SystemRoot%\System32\regsvr32.exe" "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"

:: 64 bit only (32bit on 64 bit)
IF EXIST "%WinDir%\SysWOW64\actxprxy.dll" "%WinDir%\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe" "%WinDir%\SysWOW64\actxprxy.dll"
IF EXIST "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll" "%WinDir%\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe" "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"


The run it as an administrator and reboot when its finished.

This should fix it, but if it doesn’t (as was the case for me) open a CMD prompt up (again as administrator and type sfc /scannow

Once the scan has finished reboot, this worked for me (64 bit Windows running 64 bit IE)
