Multiple Highlighted Files Open Problem

If I highlight 2 or more csv files and click on the right mouse button and
choose open then for each of the files I've highlighted a window entitled "Move
Items" with my directory inside opens. I then click the cancel button of the
window. Next a window opens with a "Copy Items" title . I then click the
window cancel button and the 1st csv file loads into Excel. This process is
repeated for each of the highlighted csv files.

When I just double click a single csv file it loads into Excel without a
problem.

Same problem happens with Word "Doc" Files

How can I get the "Move Items" and "Copy Items" windows to stop popping up when
I try to open multiple csv files?


Thanks for any help with this problem..

Thanks for the URL. I have the "Copy To Folder" and "Move To Folder" on my
context right click menu. How do I get rid of them?

Thanks.

Open Regedit.exe and navigate to:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]

Backup the above key. Delete the two items below:

{C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
{C2FBB631-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

{C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} for Microsoft CopyTo Service
{C2FBB631-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} for Microsoft MoveTo Service
