    there's this one thing I find windows explorer REALLY ANNOYING.

    if I ever type the folder address wrong (missing a colon when my hands got sloppy) in the address bar, windows explorer automatically TURNS INTO internet explorer mode and does online search.

    I don't even use IE any more except for automatic update. I wish there's a way windows explorer wouldn't automatically do it when I type the wrong folder.

    I had the access disabled for internet explorer in the add/remove program, but it doesn't do jack to windows explorer from doing it
