An Unusual Problem with Desktop Folders

Ever since I installed a 3rd party Explorer replacement (since uninstalled),
called Powerdesk, when I doubleclick on Desktop folders I get an error
message from Windows XP that says --Can Not Find c:\Documents and Settings\My
Account\Desktop\Folder--. But if I right click and Open, it opens normally.
This only happens with folders, not with Shortcuts to folders or with the
Recycle Bin. Also, I can doubleclick files, and they open normally in the
default app.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what might be happening, and how I
might correct it?
