RE: Can't select multiple files in the default Download folder
I am having the same problem with Vista build 6000. The OS installed with no
problems, but then over the past two weeks it has become impossible to select
multiple files. The "Select All" feature is disabled. The registry changes
did not seem to work for me. Has anyone found a solution to restoring
folders to the correct format? It seems like the "Apply to Folder" buttons
are not functioning as intended. It is a real pain to manually move one
file/folder at a time.

RE: Can't select multiple files in the default Download folder
Here is what I did to fix the problem. I had the problem across all folders
even shares. Here's the steps to fix it:

Create a new user on your box.
Log in as that user
Open the registry and export the key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Streams\Defaults]
I have 3 values here.
Log back into your problem user/profile and import the reg key you exported
above.
Log out and log back in... problem should be solved.

This definitely sounds like a bug to me.

RE: Can't select multiple files in the default Download folder
ok ... narrowed it down just a bit more. Looks like it's the value:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Streams\Defaults]
"{5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7}"

Export that from a new profile and reimport on your broken one and all
should be fixed.

Good Luck
