I don't get what you mean, does it close then open with that directory open. Or does it just go back to where you started?

Alright, say if I had nothing opened.

Now, I'd try to enter a directory like some folder on my desktop or My Computer or whatever. It would load the fodler, but it wouldn't show the folder. It would bring up nothing. Just close explorer.exe and reopen it.

Nothing would open.

That is kind of strange... have you installed anything new lately, or played around with your computer in anyway? It sounds like something messed up the GUI. Try to do it in the command prompt.

Virus maybe. I had a case once where when I tried to open a folder- sometimes it would not open the folder and crash explorer.exe.
