    I have Vista x64 SP1 and when I double-click on a folder in the right pane, a
    new window opens up. I have selected the option "Open each folder in the same
    window", but explorer is ignoring this setting.

    The only way to get it to work is to right-click on the folder, then choose
    "Explore".

    I haven't seen a solution posted here or on the Internet.

    Hello, Microsoft? What is the hotfix for this? Pls generate one!

    It seems that your system has been infected.Please run a complete and
    thorough scan of your system fully using Windows Defender with the latest
    definitions(available from Windows Update) as well as the latest version of
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool(available from the Microsoft
    Download Center).

    Try using other security software too,including the ones I mentioned.I may
    be wrong but I do not think there exists any other reason why `Open` instead
    of `Explore` would become the default option (written in bold) when you
    right-click a folder while in the exploring mode.
    This behaviour does not exist by default in a clean installation.You also
    mention that you have set the settings correctly.So most probably something
    `under-the-hood` is causing to let that setting go ignored.
