For about a week ago I tryed to search for a file in WinXPSP3. Ever since then whenever I double click any folder any where, the search app and the folder does not open. I have tryed shutting off indexing and search in services. I shut off a start up task called "desktop search' in msconfig, nothing helps.

I have run out of placed to go except the registry.

Anybody have any ideas?

Click on start button

Go to RUN and type

cmd and click ok

Now copy this command

regsv32 /i shell32.dll


See if you can open your folders now

Good luck
