    Some how my idiot brother altered the drop down menu that is brought up when you right click on a folder.
    I guess the deault order is
    Open
    Explore
    Search

    But now it has been switched to
    Seach
    Open
    Explore

    He doesnt remember how it was done, so I dont know how to correct this problem.

    Your brother may be innocent. This happens sometimes simply by opening folderoptions/filetypes.
    What happens when you doubleclick the folder? Does it open the search window? If so start Registry Editor (Regedit).
    Locate and then click the Default value under the following keys in the registry if this problem occurs with drives:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell

    If this problem occurs with folders:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

    Click Modify on the Edit menu.
    Type none in the Value data box, and then click OK.
    Quit Registry Editor.


    And btw :D Welcome, here! :D

    Thanks for the help yoyo

    the advise you gave helped and resolved the situation. I just pretended that I read the other replies first and gave my brother a swift kick in the___.
