    When i double click on local disk C it opens up search. I think this may be something to do with file types in folder options but im not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Here is a screenshot of the folder option [​IMG]

    I tried double clicking my C: drive through both the right and left panes in Windows Explorer, and it would not open up Search. I checked my settings against yours in your screen shots and mine are exactly the same. I know this doesn't help you [sorry], but at least you know what's NOT wrong, lol.

    create a new entry called "open" and then the program entry is "%windir%\explorer.exe"

    thanks all :D all fixed now though a little extra issue now is that when i open up a windows explorer window it has the folder list on the left hand side. This isnt a big major issue though.
