    I've recorded a video of the problem, too:

    When clicking on a link in libraries (Such as downloads or recent places) it opens it in a new window. It randomly started doing this. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

    I looked and can't find anything. I did restore defaults, too, and it didn't fix it. They were working 100% fine yesterday.

    ....HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh man, I'm so sorry, but if you don't have a backup of those keys you deleted, you can try recreating them. Otherwise, you're boned.
    Should have read the rest of the thread.

    Does restoring it do anything useful?

    No. The registry is from 5/13/2016, 3 days before anything bad happened

    But nothing still works.
