My Computer icon is a pain in the wrist!

By Ground Controll ·
I just did a fresh install of Win XP Pro SP2 and here's the deal... When I open MY Computer and dbl click on a drive it opens up the search window. If I right click on a drive the first item on the list is Search, the second is Open. If I click on Open then it opens normally and any folder I dbl click on after that opens normally. It's driving me crazy! I've looked everywhere I can think of... I didn't even know that the order of the right click selection could be changed. Usually Search is 3rd or 4th on the list. Any help would be appreciated!

Folder Options are already set that way. The problem isn't in getting into a folder... that works ok... it's getting into a drive.

Well... that's how the folder selection is already set. I have no problems opening a folder once I'm in a drive... it's getting into a drive when the search screen comes up. Thanks for the reply, but no cigar.
