    "Open each folder in its own window" - Set when PCs added to domain...

    Regardless of what's set before a machine is added, it changes to open every folder in separate windows... why anyone would prefer this is a mystery to me...

    Other than Group Policies - which have been ruled out, can anyone suggest what may be causing this?

    It's rather frustrating, especially when working on machines that have the profiles deleted every day...

    Yes, there's nothing set to change the setting...

    Quick Google throws up this re: the folder setting...

    Group Policy - Folder Options - Petri.co.il forums by Daniel Petri

    Maybe get a registry watcher on the PC and see what changes that setting?

    Had this and fixed it. Using a user GPP regedit. We have a windows 2008R2 domain with windows 7 clients.

    You can copy and paste the lines below if you wish or manually recreate the preferences. Of course test it first.

    <Registry clsid="{9CD4B2F4-923D-47f5-A062-E897DD1DAD50}" name="Settings" status="Settings" image="18" changed="2011-11-03 16:26:27" uid="{AC7E9014-340C-45F6-B33D-AA5A94F567DC}"><Properties action="D" displayDecimal="0" default="0" hive="HKEY_CURRENT_USER" key="Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Exp lorer\CabinetState" name="Settings" type="REG_BINARY" value="0C0002000A01000060000000"/></Registry>
