HI There,

I have  client who is having a strange issue. Some how she doesnt know how. When she opens windows explorer, and double clicks on a dir she gets a search box insted of opening the folder. Now If i right click on the folder i can see that search is higlighted as the first option (obviously the default option) i want to know how i can change that back to open. I have looked in folder options and i can see the folder tab under file types but the only options is open or explore. Does anyone know how i can change this back to open as obviosly this is extremely annoying for the user. The opetating system is Windows XP Pro.
