I got on my pc today and find out that when I directly click on a folder I get this:

http://i14.photobuck...ctureFolder.jpg

Ive never gotten this before and Ive also noticed that now when I right click on the folder to open it, theres an option to Search the folder. That wasnt there before. Also, when I right click to open the same folder I get the usual view which is this one:

http://i14.photobuck...ctureFolder.jpg

What I want to know is, how do I go about making that search crap go away and be able to just see the view of the second picture when I directly click on the folder? Any help or solution is appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.

Hi Akuji!

Lets work on the first problem which is search opening when you try to open a folder...

Please right click this LINK, choose SAVE LINK AS or SAVE TARGET AS, and save it somewhere on your computer where you will remember where it is located. Then find the file on your computer and double-click it to run it. Click YES to the warning: Are you sure you want to add the information in FILE LOCATION HERE\folderopenssearch.reg to the registry? Then reboot your computer and once rebooted, try opening a folder.

Good to hear! :whistling:

It cleared up both of the problems you were having? Just checking to make sure, because I never had a problem like your second one and didn't know if the above registry fix cleared that up as well.
