Windows Explorer loses Folder Customization

Posted: 03-02-2009, 11:49 PM
I am running Vista Home Premium, and have a problem with Windows Explorer.
When I set the customization of some folders, the settings for some other
folders change. For example, I have one folder that contains data files, and
I prefer to have this displayed in the "All Items" style. I right click on
the folder name and select Properties from the pop up menu. I select the
"Customization" tab and set the folder type to "All Items". Another folder
contains photographs, and I set this to display as "Pictures and Videos".
When I set the second folder, the first one also changes to "Pictures and
Videos". When I set the first one back again, the second one also changes.
The problem does not affect every folder, but just seems to affect certain
pairs of folders, which interact in this way. When I reboot the PC, the
folder settings remain as they were immediately before the reboot, and do not
appear to be affected by the reboot. How do I eliminate the interaction
between the settings of different folders and get each folder to keep its own
