    single click/double click to open files/folders

    I'm trying to find the group policy template/setting or registry key that is responsible for the single click/double click to open a file/folder.
    I've tried everything I can think of and all the suggestions on the web. The generall cause of this seems to be the turn on/off windows classic shell, which I have set to off. The folder options menu is set to double click to open so it must be something within the profile I am loading but I can find nothing in the group policy templates I am using. Has anyone had the same problem? Any help would be appreciated!!

    Thanks,
    Nick
