I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

For some time now, double clicking on a folder no longer opens it as usual. Instead, double clicking on a folder causes a separate Explorer Search window to open, with that folder's name under the "search in" tab. In fact, when i right click on a folder, the first and bold-faced option is "search", as opposed to "open". So to open any folder I have to right click it and hit open, which is slow and annoying. I cleaned out my registry, spyware, viruses, everything, and still this problem persists. I also checked the Mouse control panel, nothing there.

Anyone know what's going on with my computer?

Hey,

Recently my explorer changed the way i click on folders from double click to open to single to open (same as internet links), i tried to change it back, but unsucessfuly by using the folder option:
1. Change option
2. Change option, back to single click and back to double click
3. Reset defaults
4. Reset defaults in all tabs in Folder Options.

This is driving me nuts, I've been double clicking forever.
Any suggestions?

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

My Windows XP, SP2 system has recently developed some problem behaviour:

For example, if I download an executable (say ppp.exe); open the containing folder using Explorer and "right-click" "open" on the file ppp.exe, the executable does not execute. Instead the Explorer window shows an "hour glass" cursor and the Explorer window shows the (not Responding) message in its title.

The only way to recover has been to power off the machine - the Windows shut-down sequence appears to be broken.

Similar behaviour occurs if I "double-click" on the executable.

If I boot Windows XP in safe mode, I find that I can execute the ppp.exe file with success, but this is cumbersome and recently I have been experiencing problems getting into safe mode.

Also, the "Add or Remove" program has stopped working - I get the "hour glass" hang during what should be a normal uninstall sequence.

I would appreciate help in getting my XP system back to working condition.

Thanks.

Hi, I need to find a fix for this issue I have with a change in Windows 8. I am running Windows 8 Pro and normally (in windows 7 and older) when I Right click on a folder, the default option for properties is "r". Nice and quick and next to my
left hand which rests on the left side of the keyboard. Now it has changed to "o" and not only that, there are 2 options for "o". Open and Properties. Very frustrating and not very easy to get around. Any way of getting around this whether
it be alternative software or reg hack or something... anything. Itsvery annoying.
Cheers

A:Right Click on folder and select "R" for Properties has changed to "O"

Well it looks like the US version oif the upgrade iso/cd is the version that has the r has properties. UK version is O which really doesnt make sense as open is O aswell so you have to press it twice then enter. I like my keyboard shortcuts so US version
is. Problem solved. language to install must read US (English) on the install screen.
Prolem solved

I have posted that here, and really hope that someone can help me with this.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Hi TechGuy,

I'm having some recent problems on my laptop. When I log-in and start using it, the performance starts slowing down. When I look at the Task Manager, I notice that the task called Explorer.exe takes up a lot of my CPU. In a couple of minutes, I also start getting Internet Explorer windows to pop-up on my screen (I normally use Firefox) with advertisements suggesting that my computer is infected and some software downloads that could help. I recently installed McAfee Total Works, or whatever they call their 10-in-1 software which is supposed to do it all. I ran several scans, and on some of them, if did find and disable the Generic.dx trojan. Even though it claims it is doing something, I don't notice any changes - Explorer.exe continues to bog me down, and the IE windows keep popping up to the point that I cannot use my computer effectively anymore.

Any pointers would be truly appreciated!!

I have looked around for help on this issue and havn't been able to find a resolution that works. I think because I havn't been able to find any imformation on my specific issue.

I am one of the most computer literate people I know, so when a co-worker mentioned to me that he was having problems with his computer, I agreed to look at it. His problem was simple, he had a lot of viruses. I have cleared most (however I assume not all) viruses and instinces of spyware. The computer worked fine for a little while while I did some final checks on his computer, then the problems started.
He has a Dell Inspiron 710m Laptop, running Windows XP Pro. (Service tag 8sk8091)
As far as I can tell, he has not added or upgraded it in any way. He only has some basic programs.

I know that the issues might have something to do with his wireless.
He is running the Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG.
The computer is getting stop errors (BSOD)

The first one was called DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Stop: 0x000000D1 amd listed the file w29n51.sys (which upon further study, turned out to be a file related to his wireless.)

I have already updated the drivers and reinstalled the program with the latest versions on the Intel website.

When I press "open file" in the program "Business Intelligence" of an Office
program like Excel, I would like the window columns to be in "detail" view
instead of "list" view.
How can I do this?
Is this a registry default that can be changed?
Thanks,

In any application under Win XP, when I use a Save As or Open dialog box, and click the down arrow next to the location box to search for the folder I want, the application never responds. Usually, I have to click the arrow a couple of times and then it sort of wakes up and responds, or the application crashes (the title bar of the dialog box will say "Not Responding".

Often, in the case of the Save As dialog, it won't say Save As in the upper left corner, only an "S" will appear there.

Seems like a memory issue or else something corrupt in the system. Before I shell out $35 to MS to have them fix something that shouldn't be broken, can anyone help???

safe to assume its impossible to remove the "open" and the "merge" entries from the context menu? I figure if i want to open or merge them i would simply double click. Clutter and redundency in this vein dont suit me :P

A:remove the "open" and "merge" entries from context menu?

Open I don't think so, Merge sounds like it is added by a 3rd party program, and likely can be removed. Have a look at ShellMenuvVew and ShellExView from NirSoft. You can remove entries with both. But Open will not be listed, and I have seen no way to remove it. A Guy

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

Hello,

I'm an XP user and I need help desperately. I have a Dell notebook and of late, every time I open "My Computer" and double-click on the C drive or the D drive, the "Open With...." dialogue window opens up. So now if I want to get into my hard drives, I have to right click and choose "Open" or "Explore". This is getting very frustrating and I'm not that qualified to go around tweaking registry items. So can anyone help me out with this? I understand that some people have had a similar problem - the "Search" window opens up when double-clicking the drive icons. By the way, out of desperation, I used the "Fix Folder open.vbs" file and it still didn't work. Any advice will be highly appreciated. Many thanks.

Hello all,

I have a problem with my Windows XP, and the problem is like the title says, Why when I Open(double clicking) My Computer icon on desktop, it displays searching "Flashlight" icon rather than browsing or showing my folders and drives?

Do you guys know how to fix it?

Thanks.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:

Hello everyone,

I've run into an issue that I can't seem to find answer to on the net.

When I open My Computer, Control Panel or any folder no files or directories display, after first there is a green loading bar on the address bar and little magnifying glasses (searching icon) on the left side directories but never displays anything.

The files I can see in other folders are unable to be opened and have white blank page icons next to them.

I can still run application so I'm not sure what the issue is. I ran a scan for virus with nothing found and I have also ran a windows update but have not restarted my PC yet.

About one month ago, a new problem surfaced:

Most times when I try to "Save As" a document and the application calls Windows Explorer for me to Browse where to save the file, it hangs for upwards of 60 seconds. The Browse window appears, but then I get a "spinning circular cursor" for 45-60 seconds until I can do anything. This occurs in all applications from MSExcel through Internet Explorer.

The system never completely crashes, but there is always this 60 second lag now.

The lag also occurs when I try to open a document...and to a less extent, but sometimes, when I simply open Windows Explorer (Windows Explorer is inconsistent as to whether it will give me a lag...sometimes it does work fine).

I have previously tried posting in the malware forum. I had picked something up they found...and cleaned it out, but that seems to have been completely unrelated to this as it was a virus redirecting my Google searches.

Can anyone help?

This has been happening the majority of the time for the last week or so. I've scanned for viruses, spyware, etc., but that isn't the problem. Whenever I try to save as, nothing happens. The hour glass comes up for about a half a second and then nothing happens. The same when I try to click browse or when I try to open a file, like pictures. This has never happened before except the last few days.

I hope someone can help. Thank you.

I am posting this for a friend so he at least can get past the first hurdle. He is unable to start any programs or connect to the internet. Whenever he clicks on something he gets a popup that says "Click here to run scan" ... which he says must be a virus. He started in safe mode and ran Super Antispyware, but it didn't help.
 

A:Virus? Can't open programs or internet, popup says "Click on here to run scan"

Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

After that last error message he can't even start his computer. If he purchased Windows 7 and tried to install that would it clean out the old windows and fix everything automatically? Or, does whatever is in there have to be fixed first, before he can install it. He got the system from someone awhile ago so he doesn't have the installation discs, he is going to check with him. I just thought it might be easier to install the new windows instead, and it might be cheaper overall then taking it to geek squad or whatever they're called. Not sure what to do in this situation, never had it that bad with any of my problems.

Note: I am familiar with the Registry and have used it many times, before you worry
Okay, i want to create a command in my right-click menu, in Windows XP, so, for example when i'm video editing, Web-page desiging and alike, in "my recent documents", i can go to the directory of the file itself, instead of simply opening the file.

Its a simple timesaver really and although everything i use is organised into folders, i sometimes wonder if theres organised and then too organised with many sub-directorys leading to the files i need.

So, in the registry, my first guess was to go HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell

Creating a key named "Explore" and editing it to display the name i wanted in the right click-menu.
Then i created a sub-key, labelled it command, and am working upon what i need to do in here.

I was wondering if anyone could suggest the line i will need, i've been working on it for a while with no luck.
I know the basics, for example explorer.exe is a must, then followed by various commands such as /e,/root, etc etc.

What i'm saying is, i know the commands, just not how i need to structure them to do what i am asking.

Thank you if you can help.

I can download files quite fine, but the problem is that when I try to open the file either from the dialogue window that shows up after the download OR when the file opens automatically after a download, a new dialogue window shows up that says "Verify" (apparently while the system verifies the file for who knows what).

Now, that window showing doesn't really bother me that much, even though it does bother me, the real problem arises when you download multiple files at the same time and open those files because once the system tries to verify all those files at the same time it ends up crashing the browser.

So what I'm mainly looking for is a setting that would disable this file verification by Vista/IE7.

I have a fairly good computer, with 2GB of RAM, 2.20 Dual Core processor so I really really doubt this is a performance issue.

Thanks.

Can provide screenshots if needed.

The computer booted only to wallpaper.
Before the wallpaper appeared, a notice with a title bar of userinit.exe - corrupt

The only way I could interact, in a very limited way, with Windows was to bring up the task manager using ctrl alt del keystroke combination.

I ran sfc /scannow. No success.

I booted to the recovery console & ran chkdsk /r [ implies p & f ].

Then BSOD, problem c000021a with

NOW, the desktop [ wallpaper, icons & taskbar appear ]. Hurrah.
But when I try to open the desktop folder "My Documents" Windows' search utility appears.
When I right click on a desktop icon, instead of seeing "open" or "explorer", I see "search".

When I try to open "My Computer" from the start menu, Windows' search utility appears.

start > run
type: explorer.exe brings up Windows Explorer, so I can explore / view files that way.

I am looking forward to your assistance.

Hello all,
I have seen posts about this problem but was unable to find an answer. I am running Firefox 3.6.17 on Windows 7 Pro 64x. When downloading files from the Internet I am unable to "Open" or "Open the containing folder", in other words I can't get to the download. I am running the free version of Zone Alarm and use free AVG anti-virus. I don't recall changing anything in those programs recently. It seems like all the sudden I am not able to download content any longer. It has worked fine in the past. This is a homebuilt machine. What would be the things to try, either in the antivirus or firewall if there were setting changes made there? Barring that are there any other things I could try?
Thanks in advance for all the help.

If the default program for an extension is wrong, I find it most natural to change it using the 'Choose Program' option on the 'Open With' menu from the context menu for the file. However, that stopped working correctly a few weeks ago. It is supposed to bring up a dialogue that allows one to choose another program and, optionally, to make that be the new default for the file type. However, what is happening now is that it goes ahead and invokes an irrelevant program (the Emacs text editor) which cannot handle the file. I never see the 'Choose Program' dialogue.

(E.g., I am trying to open a video file with a different player, and, when I click 'Choose Program', it immediately hands the file to Emacs, rather than giving me the chance to say I want to use VLC. (Fortunately, Emacs realizes that the file is too big for anything it can normally do and awaits verification before actually trying.))

I know I can still modify the association using Folder Options; but I would rather get 'Choose Program' working again if anyone can show me how.

Lost the ""open" command in my right click context menu.

Have managed to get it back for files and folders but can't find how to get it back for desktop icons.
When I right click on my desktop icons (ie: my computer, my documents, recycle bin) then search appears at the top of the context menu.

I assume I need to create a link between the desktop icons and windows explorer, but haven't been able to find what file type desktop icons are.

Can anyone show me how to do this, or point me in the right direction. Or is there another way to solve this problem?

Recently I right clicked on a file (.jpg) and chose the "open with" command. Since the command was not listed, I browsed for the program file, selected it, and opened my file just as I wanted to.

Now, this added the new program to my currently listed "open with" menu ("recommended programs"), but there is no file name associated with the new program - it's blank.

I would just like to give it a name, so my question is, how do I edit that particular command on that menu to achieve the result I desire?

I have already tried finding a way by viewing these areas:

1. By accessing the folder options, then file types
2. the registry

Every time I click "open" from an application, I get a split-second delay- and a little click; which I think comes from the floppy drive- before the folders are opened. I believe it's because the computer is somehow scanning all the drives or something...(don't know diddly about it). Is there some way I can eliminate this delay? It's not as serious or important as it is just plain annoying.

When left alone..."Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

I have a new(ish) cpu that I bought last Christmas, it works great and it has not crashed on me whenever I am using it. However, when I leave it on overnight (usually when it is downloading something big), when I wake up in the morning I am greeted with a black screen with the words:

"Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

When this happens I simply press the power button a few seconds to turn it off, then turn it on again and it boots normally. (pressing a key only results in the message being repeated)

What infuriates me is that it only ever happens when I leave it on overnight so I don't know when and how exactly it occurs but it almost always does. Like I said earler, it never does this when I am using it as it works fine otherwise. It just won't stay on overnight when I need it to. Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I use Firefox 2 in my Win XP environment.

Recently, the machine has been locking up requiring a "restart" when the following sequence occurs:

1. Use Firefox with DTA to download an executable file (say alpha.exe) to my regular download folder.
2. Open the download folder with Windows Explorer.
3. Select the executable file, alpha.exe.
4. Right click and select "Open".

At this point, the system locks up - use of Task Manager or Process Explorer to "kill" the locked program doesn't work.

I have to do a "restart" from the Task Manager, Process Explorer or from the Windows Start button.

It may well be that the "right click" "open" sequence on any existing executatble will cause this failure, but I haven't tried this, since I am generally using the sequence to open a new executable.

Hiya, I could use a little help resolving what should be a simple problem. It's really a long story, but to skip to the important part, I'll just recount this little tale:

I wanted to delete some files off of an old external hard drive to make space for some new stuff. It didn't matter, since the files I was deleting had been long since copied to a new drive. However, Vista, in its infinite wisdom, told me I couldn't delete the files, and it was for my own good. I politely said, "okay, Vista! Thanks for keeping me honest!"

But then I muttered, "I already have a mother" under my breath, and proceeded to go behind Vista's back and turn off User Account Control so I could delete the files anyway. Well, I knew that wasn't the best idea, so I immediately turned UAC back on afterwards, but it was too late. Vista caught me, and after the second restart, smote me with a problem I'd seen once before: nearly every program on my computer was said to have been closed after it "encountered a problem" or some nonsense, and when restarted again, the disk checker was run, found numerous problems, and did whatever it had to do to go about fixing them all.

Now I'm not sure what all that was about, because everything seems to be running okay now, save for one minor thing. That little "click" sound you get when navigating windows explorer was nowhere to be heard. I tried another restart and another disk check, b... Read more
