Hello, I have a slight problem :\.  My "browse for folder" window does not have the white box which displays my files and folders (Hard disks and devices as well) in it. (If you don't know which window i'm talking about, right-click your desktop, create New>Shortcut and hit "browse".  The "Browse for folder" window should appear, My window just looks like a box with an OK button, Cancel button, and Create new folder button)  I used to be able to browse my computer within a white box, but for some strange reason the box no longer appears...  Anybody able to help me?  :(

Thanks for your support, but this hasn't worked :(.  I've scanned my system files, replaced most of them from the bootup disc, and scanned for viruses and adware.  I still have the same problem; the "Browse For Folder" window still doesn't have the white file/folder-tree box. :(  Someone please post up if you know how to fix this!  If not, then I guess i'll have to talk my family into backing up all of their important files to a CD so I can reinstall windows XP...  Someone please post up though!

Try the following:

1.      Click Start, and then click Run.
2.      In the Open box, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
3.      In the Command window, type regsvr32 mshtml.dll, and then press ENTER.
4.      Click OK to confirm that the registry entry has been added.
5.      In the Command window, type regsvr32 shdocvw.dll -i, and then press ENTER.
6.      Click OK to confirm that the registry entry has been added.
7.      In the Command window, type regsvr32 shell32.dll -i, and then press ENTER.
8.      Click OK to confirm that the registry entry has been added.
9.      Close the Command window.

Not sure it works. It's hard to try something when you cannot reproduce the problem ;)

You could try a repair installation - then you wouldn't have to back up your data - just takes a little time to do...

Though you never said what OS you're using..
Assuming XP...
