In Explorer, click on 'Tools' and choose 'Folder Options'. Under 'Click
items as follows..' select 'Double-click...'

Explorer uses blue text to indicate compressed files (and green for encrypted files). If your hard drive is getting full, and compression is enabled, it could be this.

Sounds like they are compressed files then, try this (http://xona.com/2006/07/11.html)
