everytime i double click a folder, it takes me to some kind of file search. i've tried going through Mouse Properties but no luck. whenever i right click on a file the box comes up but it give me the option to "Search" and "install" then "Open" and so on. i got this problem because i did the stupid thing of changing the text of some of those options and typed "install" myself. does anyone know how i can delete "Search" and "install"? i'm tired of right clicking a file then scrolling down to "Open".... i need my double click back

Hi KLep KiLLz...

Have a look in Folder Options (from Control Panel). Under the "General" tab, is the button next to "Double-click to open an item (single-click to select)" selected?

Have you tried a System Restore to a date before you "messed" with the settings?

no, the folders tab idea didn't work. a person once told me that it was simple to change what i did. u see, i tried to install a program a few months ago, it told me to add one of the names as i stated earlier. i THINK i had to go through control panel and screw with a folder. i wish i can find that program again so i can figure out how i did it. i would like to try a system restore but i have so much stuff on this computer that i can't gamble on losing it. plus, i don't think i have any saved dates on it. like someone told me, its a simple thing to change. by the way, thanks for getting back at me
