I was working with my office computer when i click on drive C, it open up but it started with the SEARCH control.. grrrrrrrr.. i hate that stuff.. so as a system support, i tried to search to internet what is the cause and possible solution for such.. it takes me 5-10 minutes searching for such and finally i found the ff:

CAUSE:
The default action for the item FILE FOLDER in the registered file types (which can be found under TOOLS>FOLDER OPTION> FILE TYPES and click on ADVANCE button) where changed into FIND instead of NONE.

SOLUTION:
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

To resolve this problem, edit the registry to set the value data for the Default stri
ng value in the registry keys that are described in the "Cause" section of this article to none:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).

2. Locate and then click the Default value under the following keys in the registry if this problem occurs with folders:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

If this problem occurs with drives:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell

3. Click Modify on the Edit menu.

4. Type none in the Value data box, and then click OK.

5. Quit Registry Editor.

And finally, i am working as normal as i like.. wahaaaa.. i hope this would help my readers (if i do have reader) nyahahah..
