Hi All,
Im Mummabear, Carol to my friends.
Dont know if ive done this right:mrgreen: but here goes.
Can anyone help...since reformatting my pc my system is doing a strange thing.
When I click on my local ddrives c,d or e,the windows search box comes up instead of the contents of that drive. I can access by right click and open but it is just so annoying.
Can anyone help with the solution,please please:)
Thanks
carol

Have you run any virus scans recently?

If not, run several scans:

CCleaner
Ewido
Panda Activescan Online

All are free, and Ewido & CCleaner need to be installed.

Click the "Start" button, click "Run" and type the word:-
REGEDIT
and make your way to these two places:-

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell

and double-click the (Default) in the right hand side and type the word:-
none
