Vista: Can not select multiple files using click+drag, ctrl+click, or shift+click, or
 
I have been running the 64 bit version of Vista Ultimate for about 3 days now. I donít know if Iíve had this problem from the beginning and I just noticed it or if it just started yesterday. On the desktop I can click and drag to select multiple files. I cannot do so anywhere else. In file explorer I cannot select multiple files by clicking and dragging, using ctrl+click, shift+click, ctrl+a or even through Edit > Select All (It's grayed out on the menu). I simply cannot do it. All these shortcuts work for desktop icons but at no other point can I select multiple files.

I have tried different file listings (tiles, icons, thumbnails) as well as sorting them differently and with no success.

What did I do wrong here?

Tried that, no luck :(

Something similar is posted: here.

I found a thread about this on a site called vista64.net (click)
I made a post but unfortunately the forum is moderated so my post hasn't shown up yet.

I discovered this “thread” I was reading and posting in is actually a conversation on a newsgroup that was being mirrored to vista64.net. (microsoft.public.windows.vista.file_management (news://msnews.microsoft.com if you need a news server)). Anyway, the Microsoft guy posted an updated version of his script that corrected the problem for me. http://mysite.verizon.net/res18hr7/FixSingleSelect.zip

… you know, in case anybody else runs into the problem and looks here for help.
