Ok i just re-installed Win XP pro and when i try to double click on my HDs
or optical drives i get the windows search menu instead.

If i right click i see that the search option is on top and not open. Now
before this i installed Acdsee (picture viewing program) and if i tried the
above that would open and if i right clicked one of my drives acdsee what
top of the list and below was search.

I was messing around with folder options getting it back to a more classic
windows look buti tried resetting defaults but no joy.


Help me its driving me mad and i don want to go through another install just
to get rid of something as stupid as this.

Thanks a bunch for that :)
