The problem is that when I click the C Drive in My computer, instead of showing the files in C drive, search companion show up, and it happen to all my Drive, it was not like that before, it happen recently, please help me, I think the problem is that when I right click on the C Drive the "Open" is not on the top, before this happen the "open" in on the top, but now for some reason the "Search" is on the top. This is very annoying because now every time I have to right click and select " Open" in order to view the content of each Drive.

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
