When double-clicking on a folder in Windows Explorer list window it opens a new window. Tools->Folder Options->Open each folder in same window is selected.

How can I find which plugin or application is messing with this behavior? And fix it.

Check Tools > Folder Options

On the General tab (I think it's still there in Windows 7*), there's an option called "Browse Folders". Make sure the "Open each folder in the same window" option is selected.

* I can't double check at the moment as I don't have access to a Windows 7 machine at the weekend.

"Tools->Folder Options->Open each folder in same window is selected."? –  jswanson Feb 6 '10 at 17:33
    
@jswanson - oops. Thanks for the heads up. Brain going faster than fingers as usual. –  ChrisF Feb 6 '10 at 17:36

I know this is a little old but I resolved this by changing the mentioned setting to "Open each folder in it's own window" and clicked Apply and then I set it back to "Open each folder in the same window" and clicked Apply again.

Organize->Folder and search options->Open each folder in it's own window

Apply

Organize->Folder and search options->Open each folder in the same window

Apply
