Why can\'t I Drag and Drop?

When I drag and drop a folder it only takes an outline, then when I unclick the folder goes into that outline. Before I used to be able to drag and drop the folder with no outline.

  7. Settings should be saved on exit, if it's not happening you have a problem.
    Go to windows explorer, Documents and Settings, right click and select Properties, uncheck Read Only for all subfolders and files as well. Shutdown and restart, it should save your settings.
    Make sure when you're in video properties you also click Apply or OK, do not click X out of it.
