When I double click the C or the A Drives the search results box pops up, I can only open C&A Drives by right clicking, then open.

What the dickins is going on?

Its caused by a corrupt file. Last time it happened to me, the only way I could fix was to Over install the OS, (Win98SE), to replace the damaged file.

Somehow the default action has been changed. You need to edit the registry to correct it.

The key you should be looking for to change (in the RESOLUTION section of the article) is HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
