Default Folders in Harddrive open Search

Hello, Im having an odd problem which i cant figure out how to resolve. When i go to "local disk" and try to open any folder in it.. for example the "Programs" Folder it opens up the "search" page. the one when u go to Start and click search... i went through the folder options and made everything to default and it still didnt solve the problem any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Woh, that's a weird one. I would start with a virus scan and see where that takes you.

Soo... this is a cause of a virus? I was thinking along the lines of a setting?

I'm not sure. I wouldn't put it past a virus though. At the very least I want to be able to scratch virus off of the list as a possible cause.
