I'm not sure if this is caused by spyware, a virus, or just my own doing, but every time I click on a folder to open it in brings me to the window to do a search. I had problems with spyware that I fixed, but I don't know what to do with this problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated.

Welcome ruddell

Before anyone can help with this problem, we need a bit more information.

What operating system are you running? What steps to scan for malware have you used? What spyware was found and how did you remove it?
