  2. hi,

    usually when something crazy happen, I try to restore my computer to a
    previous point in time, when that problem wasn't happening...

    Did you try to use System Restore?

    Thanks

    Solution to Problem in Vist

    PROBLEM

    _Cannot_select_multiple_files._ For example, if you want t
    highlight more than one file at a time to, say, delete a bunch of file
    all at once, you would normally click on the first file, press and hol
    the Shift key, and then press the last file. This highlights all th
    files in between and now you can operate on all of the files at once

    Go to Start button

    Type in COMMAND. This gives you the DOS Command Prompt line

    Type in REGEDIT. This will take you to the registry

    Locate the key named: HKEY_CURRENT_USE

    Then go to

    Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shel

    Find the folders named:

    BagMRU and
    Bag

    Delete all the files under each of these folders. (Or just delete th
    whole folders.

    Go back to Windows Explorer. Close Explorer and reopen it

    You should now be able to Select Multiple Files at once

    My problem is that these two BAG folders regenerate themselves. I wan
    to know how to permanently deleted these registry folders. Or do I nee
    these files for something else and don't know it
