What version of Windows are you using? Are you on a standalone PC or are you part of a domain network?
Make a backup of your registry before making any changes
Then check this setting for us
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer and the ClassicShell value
It should be to 0 for double click and to 1 for single click
