    Hi, check you haven't got click lock on and change the timing.
    You say you can't double-click folders to open them.. what about files?

    This can be the result of a malware infestation. What AV do you use, have you had any malware, have you run a scan?

    Hello Roel, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, download and merge the .reg files for the listed Folder and Directory items in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below to see if they may help. They will restore the default associations and registry entries for folders that may help.

    I did this, but also not work. Get the same error ...

    Sorry, I cannot replay on your post.

    In that case, you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo the cause.

    You could see if you may be able to hide it to no longer have it install.

    See here: Default File Type Associations - Restore in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Scroll down to Folder and download and merge that .reg file, should fix this problem.
