Title explains it really, every time I try to open a disk (i.e. my ext HD, C:/ etc...), and double-click my touchpad or buttons, a Search opens. Search is at the top of the Right-click menu aswell

I am now sick of seeing that dog.

Anyone know what I can do to change it back so that it opens the drive/folder...?

Hi kill_hXc!

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.

no such luck...

From what I can figure it's only the Hard Drives that do this. Sorry, I didn't realise before, everything else opens fine.

Another thing, can I delete these links once I install them, just so I know I can hide them off the desktop.

Cheers.

Please right-click the following 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. When it is finished you will received the confirmation: Folders will now open when double clicked. Try opening a drive and see what happens.
