When i double click on display properties from the control panel, or right
click properties from the desktop, nothing happens. Hourglass appears for a
second, then nothing happens.

Fresh install of Windows XP and SP2, + all other windows updates. Have
tried both the newest NVIDIA drivers and the windows update drivers, to no
avail.

Event viewer shows nothing for these events, any ideas?

This seems to be a common problem after upgrading to SP2.

Try the following work around, suggested to me by Bobby Mikkleson:

Try booting into Safe Mode with Network support and then access the
folders. This will most likely allow you to change the folder properties.

Unfortunately, when you reboot in normal mode, you still won't be able to
change the folder properties, but they will retain the settings you made in
Safe Mode.

The Kelly tweak that has been suggested won't work, in my experience and as
reported by others.
