    The thing is that the option to open in same window is already selected, but it still opens in a new window!!! Anything else I can try?

    Sell the PC and buy a MAC :-D

    open up your window..... press ALT+T, select folder options at the bottom... select top radio button 'open each folder in the same window'

    ]This person has same prob in vista and solution is direct edit of registry.

    You can try this below. It will reset the default value in the registry for this.
    1. Open regedit
    2. Go to : HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
    3. In the right pane, right click on (Default) and click Modify.
    4. Type none and click OK.
