    Anyone who can help me I would greatly appreciatet it.

    I made some simple mods to the folder options menu in XP. Basicaly just changing icons and stuff like that...nothing major.

    My problem is, now everytime I double click on any folder, the stupid search companion pops up.

    If I right mouse click and scroll down to open, I can open the folder that way...but not with a double click.

    I'm not sure if this is the problem...but, when I right mouse click, the first word in the drop down menu is "search" in bold letters.

    When I look at my "local disk icon" in my computer, the first word on the drop down menu is open, followed by explore than search.

    I defaulted everything already...so no luck there.

    Did I map something incorrectly?

    Thanks

    Me again,

    Since the double click actually does execute a window, I would guess it has nothing to do with the mapping of the mouse.

    The fact that the search option is highlited and the first option on the drop down, makes me think either after the double click there is a disconnect and search is default to show up like a help menu...or it's just executing the first option in the pull down menu?

    It's bugging me big time...I hope I don't need to reinstall because of this.
