silver1, It won't hurt to try this:

Clcik Start>Run then copy & paste or type in:

regsvr32 /i shell32

Click OK

Note that the spacing is important.

silver1, I don't know what caused that problem but trying what I posted won't hurt anything. You can also try a System Restore to the closest date prior to when this problem started. Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
