Drives keep opening up in "search results" instead of just opening

    If I click on on Start, My Computer and C Drive or D drive, then the next
    window that opens up is a "search results" window instead of opening up the
    contents of my drives. What setting can be changed to correct this?

  2. Search Companion Starts If You Double-Click a Folder or Drive.

    This problem occurs when you alter the "Drive" / "File Folders" entries via
    File Types dialog, to add a "Command Prompt here" or "Print Directory"
    feature for folders. (example)

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=321186

    Click Start/Run and type this command to fix this problem:
    regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

    To fix this manually via registry:

    If this problem is seen for Drives:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
    Set (default) to "none" (without ")

    If this problem is seen for folders:

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell]
    Set (default) to "none" (without ")
