I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate, and when I double click on a Folder in Windows Explorer, instead of just opening it, it opens a new window.

I already checked in Tools -> Options, and "Open each folder in the same window" is selected.

What is going wrong?

Wow, you rock, thanks. I can't believe I had to edit the registry for that, though. Thanks!!! I'd vote you up, but I don't have enough rep. –  Paula Sep 30 '09 at 18:32
