    I was playing with some stuff, trying to change some icons... Now any time I click on a folder or drive, it opens a command window instead of just opening it to explore... What on earth did I do and how do I get it back?

    I think you have some messed up keys in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT tree. I dont remember which they are but I believe that is the problem

    Okay, I found out where I can change what happens when I click on folders, Control Panel>Folder Options>File Types... And I believe something got messed up under FILE FOLDER... Under Actions, I only have Find and Open Command Window Here. I can set either to default, but they either take me to a search window, or the command window... Anyone know how to get OPEN or EXPLORE back in there?
