Default windows file folder mayhem

When I double click to open a file folder in windows, it doesn't open..."find" launches instead?? This is really frustrating since I can't easily browse my system. If I want to browse I have to right-click on a file folder and then select "open" in the context menu.

Somehow, the advanced setings for my "file folders" has been changed to "find". Does anyone have any advice?

gelal, it would help if you posted which version of Windows you are operating.

Click on Start | Programs and navigate to Windows Explorer. R-clikc on it and choose 'Properties'. What path does it point to? More specifically, does the target path point to the correct file in your windows directory?
