Default File Folder -> Search

Hey,

Lately I've been tweeking my settings to give my XP Home Edition a sleek Vista like look using Style XP and a bit of my own settings. Somehow in the process I managed to alter some sort of setting that makes it so whenever I double-click on a File Folder, any folder (My Music, My Pictures, Timmy's Game, any!) instead of opening the contents of the folder it opens the search feature in the explorer.

Any help would be appreciated, I don't like having to right-click and select open every time.

- Thanx

Thank you very much. The first method didn't work, but the VBScript did.
