Re: Can select one file only suddenly
Hmmm... Further explain please...?

Also try this:
In Windows Explorer (or My Computer), click tools (press alt key if you do
not see Tools) -> Folder Options -> View. Tick "Use Checkboxes to select
Items". Click Ok.

Now, to select your files, please tick on them instead.

From MVP Keith Miller:

"It's a quirk of Explorer that's been showing up on some people's
machines. No known cause yet, but it gets saved with folder views once
it happens. I've written a script that helps MOST people with the
multi-select problem. It will remove single-select from saved folder
views & saved defaults. Right-click the link below & select 'Save Target
As..."

"Then extract the contents of the .zip file & run the script."
