I did a web search and found this...

Windows Explorer Opens Search Companion Rather than the Folder
If the Windows Explorer opens up the Search Companion rather than opening up the actual folder, the default setting for opening a folder is changed.

To correct this:

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ shell and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Drive \ shell]
Edit the default value to be explorer or none

Information came from One COmputer Guy...CLick on the link below to go there if you want.

They were None but had to change to Explore and has now moved the search to number 3 on the list making Open on the top which is very good.
