    Hi guys was changing some icons last night and managed to mess up somewhere. When i went to folder options to try and change the icon for drives it somehow reset the setting for opening drives to find. I changed it to open with windows explorer for now so that i can open things but this doesnt help as they all open in new windows. Does anyone know how to reset this action to default? I checked on my other comp and there doesnt appear to normally be a default option it just opens...
    Any help would be great,
    Thanks.

    Try a system restore

    Go to start/run/ type in msconfig
    click on launch system restore.
    Pick a date in bold, go back to before you messed up

    Good luck
