VLC player opens every folder


I am using windows XP and I have tried many forums with no help every time I try to open up a folder or file all I get is the VLC player starting, I have tried Combofix but it won't accept registration? It has been a week now and I 'm losing my mind, any help PLEASE!


  • Click on Start ---> Run --->type regedt32 and click on OK.
  • Registry editor will be opened.
  • Navigate to this location.
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory
  • now click on "Shell", at the right side there will be a file "Default". Its value should be none. If it's not set to none, then double click on default and type none and click on OK.
