    Unhappy Help! Open and explore function twisted. :(

    As stated in the topic i've been facing this problem for few days. The function for 'open' and 'explore' has swapped. At first thought, i thought this is some kind of autorun.inf virus. But it's not even a virus... And it appears normal open and explore in safe mode(unaffected). However, normal windows is affected.

    Here's the picture of it.


    any solution? Registry mechanic didn't work at all.. and yet i still looking for solution. Is it possible to registry hack it?

    OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

    Hello Pesona and welcome to WVC.

    I have just checked my PC and Laptop and I can report that both are the same as yours so don't panic. As for tweaking the registry you might be able to so but sadly I don't know of any myself.

    Hope this helps. JR

    Download the zip file(Drives-fix.zip) and extract it.
    You'll find a registry file to fix it.

    OR

    Put down the explorer tree view

    No need to panic. This is the normal setup. But why are both your disk drives red ? You are running below 10% free space. That's something I would fix. On D:, there is probably junk that does not belong there (possibly from a file backup).

    The c drive is red due to the space reserved by vista during start up. And D drive is where i place most of my games. Bloody games are taking up at least gigs of spaces. Mostly online games there.
