    I have an odd problem that i need help on.

    In my computer/ WE when I double click on one of my drives to explore it the search box appears. when I right click on it Search is at the top and bold instead of open.

    I know this may seem like a trivial thing to most of you but it's buggin the hell out of me, can any one help me fix it??

    Thanks in advance

    Not realy, I know how to change it for a folder, but not for the drive, sorry.
    Should be under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT somewhere :p

    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.
