Can anyone tell me how to stop folders been moved / dragged into one another.

Umm ... not really possible, it's part of Windows functionality.

Thanks Antmannz - thought it might be that way, as no one seems to have a solution.

You don't say who's doing it and why.

- Who: You? Family members? School kids being obnoxious?...

- Why: Attempting to use a temperamental mouse? Laptop trackball?...

If it's one of the whys - use keyboard commands for more control.

Arrows (left and right) to expand and contract folders,
Letters to navigate (eg to open the Windows folder in the left pane hit "w")
To navigate to the right pane - the tab key
PageUp / PgDown - to move a screen at a time

To move a file navigate to it then <ctrl>x to cut
Navigate to new place then <ctrl>v to paste

<ctrl>c copies then <ctrl>v pastes in it's new home
