strange folder behavior

Help! I've got Vista Home Premium, and it's getting buggier by the minute!

big issue now is that no multiple file select function work in any folders.
I can neither drag-select, ctrl-select, shift-select with the mouse nor use
the greyed-out "select all" in Organize.

It's making me bananas, which is good, because I'm feeling only slightly
smarter than a primate anyway.

From MVP Keith Miller - "It's a quirk of Explorer that's been showing
up on some people's machines. No known cause yet, but it gets saved with
folder views once it happens. I've written a script that helps MOST
people with the multi-select problem. It will remove single-select from
saved folder views & saved defaults. Right-click the link below & select
'Save Target As..."

Then extract the contents of the .zip file & run the script."

Thanks so much it worked 100%.

Just a shot in the dark, but I noticed this strange behaviour started around the time I installed and started using iTunes.

Wow, I had the same problem and it fixed it for me as well. Strangly enough
- I installed iTunes yesterday. Thanks
