Default Help with Desktop

I came to my computer and this was happenning.... every icon on my desk top, there tittle's were under lined as if they were a link, when you move the mouse on to them they get high lighted such as a link would, and when you click them once they open which on a normal desk top you have to double click? Can some one please help me. Another odd thing is that for example when I go into My Computer then I click Program Files, a new window opens up when regularely it just go to Program Files and if you want to go back you click back, with this problem it opens a new window for every thing I click?

What OS are you using? Windows 98 or XP?

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

This is a easy problem to solve. Just go to control panel, folder options, and change the "click item as follows" to your preference. You'll see your "new folder" problem in the same tab, you just change it to your preference. Hope this helps.
Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.
