  1. Im having this weird problem of when I try to open a folder in my documents I get the search window instead. such as..

    If I'm in 'My Documents', And I want to go into 'My Music'. I click it and A new window opens up, The Search window, the little dog or whatever it is is asking me what I want to search for. I always have to Right-click and choose 'open' to open a folder.. It really makes me sad.. Hehe,. Can Anyone please help me? would Really REally REALLY appreciate it.

    Found in Google all over the place
    Start->Run-> regsvr32 /i shell32.dll


    To fix the problem manually, open Registry Editor and navigate to:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ shell


    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Drive \ shell

    In the right-pane, locate and click the (Default) value
    Click Modify on the Edit menu
    Type the word none in the Value data box, and then click OK
    Exit Registry Editor.
