Clicking "see more results" on start menu search automatically redirects explorer

    I'm using Windows 7 SP1, recently clean installed. The only non-Windows processes I have running in the background are DropBox and the 2 Apple iPod services.

    When I use the Start Menu search box to search indexed files, it works fine. But when I click the "See more results" button at the bottom, which should open up a full search window, it opens up but *immediately* redirects the window to the top item in the tree hierarchy, which in this case is "Favorites." If I click "back" in explorer, I get my search results - but this is annoying. :confused:

    Additional info: when I click the "Windows Explorer" link from the start menu, I hear the navigation "click" sound every time I open it, as if it's redirecting as soon as I open it. This does *not* happen when I open explorer with the Win+E key combo.

    Any idea what's causing this? Thanks much in advance for your ideas.
