Sometimes, when I double-click certain folders inside of My Documents the search dialog will pop up.
The My Music, My Pictures, etc. folders don't do this, but other folders do. [folders i have made]

start > run, type
regedit
<enter>

navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell key, then look in the right pane...

The only entry should be DeFAULT, with a type of REG-SZ and a DATA of NONE.....

if there is more than that one, delete it....if the only one there has a different DATA value, double click it and replace what is there with NONE
