    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.

    - I installed iTunes yesterday. Thanks
