You fellas have been tremendously helpful with my past problems. I'm sure this one is simple but after several hours I haven't solved it.
I'm running XP home and have a Logitech optical mouse
On my desktop among my icons i have several folders. When I double-click the folders instead of them opening i'm taken to the search window the same one that you open in the start menu.
When i right-click on the folders and select open from the drop menu they will open normally.
When i double-click the icons they open normally
I've gone to tools/folder options/general and made sure the "double-click to open an item" radio button is selected.
Any help you can offer will be very appreciated.
