Can anyone help with this.
When I click on a folder, say My Documents another window opens saying "search results" instead of opening My Documents in the same window.
There is a little dog at the bottom left of the screen.
If I right click on a folder the first option is search the next is open, this is how I am getting round it.
How do I get rid of the search option, it's doing me nut in.:x
Double Click MY COMPUTER
Click TOOLS then FOLDER OPTIONS
Click RESTORE DEFAULTS
Still getting the search window.
Something I didnt mention was that this started to happen after my son installed a windows 95 game. The folder icon changed to the old 95 image, I managed to get the XP folder icon back but cant get rid of the search window.
A Win 95 game shouldn't mess up the system like this.
Have you tried doing a System Restore?
Yep, no joy.
I have also done,
File Folder, set to none. In advanced it shows find.
Folder, set to none.In advanced it shows;
Browse with paint shop pro 8
open(set as default)
I havn't messed with these settings though.
