Yes. Please check the file associations. You could right click on the file, select open with, and select the appropriate program to open the file ( and check always use this program to open this type of file).

There are two simple suggestions here

One involves the double click speed and the other is an explorer setting

Sorry if I was not clear with the question.

He can open all the files, such as excel, pdf, word, etc....

but every now and then, those files he used to be able to open can not be opened anymore, no popup, no error msg, after double clicks, just sit there...same thing to the folders.

He has to reboot his pc, then it will go back to normal for a while, I checked the virus, it is clean...thx

Does right click and open work when this bug appears?

This thread (especially the first post) looks promising.

I guess that eliminates the mouse. I have no more suggestions at the moment.
