When I double-click a folder, Search opens up instead of Open.
 
When I try to open a file by double-clicking on it, the Search box comes up as if I wanted to search for a file. If I right click on the folder, Search is the very first command at the top and its bold while open is toward the middle of the menu. Anyone know how to get to reverse this problem?

I've found this article and it worked for me....hope it helps you too

Article :

Have you ever double clicked a folder to open it, and it opened the search window?

First check to see what the default action of the Icon is. Right Click the folder, is "Search" the default action (The one in bold)?

The way to cure this problem is to open up the registry (start - run - regedit) and navigate to..

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ Directory\ shell]

With "shell" highlighted, change the "default" data to "none" on the right-side.

then go here:-

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ Drive\ shell]

With "shell" highlighted, change the "default" data to "none" on the right-side.

The folder icons should be back to normal again!
