I am using Windows XP with Service Pack 2. Lately, when I open My Computer,
and then double click on the icon for the C: drive, instead of C: opening up
and displaying the contents of the drive, it opens a search screne in aother
window. I would like to be able to explore the contents of the folders
again, but I don't know how to reset the parameters for the program.

Can you help me?
