Sometime last night...something changed on my computer here, where everytime you double click say, a folder, or a drive in explorer, it opens up a Search Files and Folders window... Im not sure...how exactly that happened...but I am curious if anyone might be able to help me out in correcting that issue, otherwise i have to go and do a restore to yesterday morning, which will erase all changes i have made...meaning i have to do all this again :eek: ! Thanks guys :)

Open regedit and navigate to:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ Shell

and

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Drive \ shell

and give both the value of: None

Ah! I guess we think alike. I finaly remembered that i had changed a ton of icons in the type thing...which dont do nothin at all for the display icons i guess... so, anyway... somehow that messed up the regsettings, drive had defaulted to "find", so i checked all my friends XP systems with remote desktop, and they all had the same, only not default, so i just added an new entry, open, yadda yadda, and deleted it from the registry all is well. In effect does the same thing you just stated. Thank you allan. :D Learn somethin new every day. time for a nap :).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
