    I can no longer review the contents of my drives from my
    computer. When I click on any of the drives displayed,
    the Search Wizard comes up rather than the drive opening
    to display folders. How may I change this?

  2. Hi Karen,

    There is a fix here for that odd behavior, courtesy MVP Doug Knox:

    Start - Run - regedit.exe
    Open the left pane (explorer style) to
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
    Highlight it, and in the right pane double click on (Default) and enter
    the exact four character word
    none

    Repeat at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\\Folder\shell
