I go to my computer and it takes me to all my drives. Now when I click on them it takes me to the search instead of opening it up. When I right click search is on top and bold and open is directly below search. What gives and how do I fix?

Sounds like Some File and registry association has gotten messed up.

Try this :

CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE: : To ensure that Windows XP performs at its best all the time you can use the System file checker to locate any missing or damaged system files and replace them. Click on ''Start'' ''Run'' and type exactly WITHOUT quotation marks ''sfc /scannow'' and press ''Enter''.The windows file protection monitor will now scan your entire system for missing or damaged files.Keep your original Windows XP CD at hand as you may be asked for it to replace any missing or damaged files. Other commands that can be used for this step are:

System File Checker Utility (Scan Immediately) sfc /scannow
System File Checker Utility (Scan Once At Next Boot) sfc /scanonce
System File Checker Utility (Scan On Every Boot) sfc /scanboot
System File Checker Utility (Return to Default Setting) sfc /revert
System File Checker Utility (Purge File Cache) sfc /purgecache
System File Checker Utility (Set Cache Size to size x) sfc /cachesize=x

Also run a registry fixer such as registry mechanic

Also look at my other Faqs as there may be a fix especially in the Windows ones in my Sig.
