Search Window Appears When Double clicking on a Folder !

yellow

Instead of showing the contents of the folder just a search window appears !
Microsoft acknowledges that this is a problem in Knowledge Base article #321379 and offers the following fix:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2. Locate and then click the Default value under the following keys in the registry if this problem occurs with folders:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
If this problem occurs with drives:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
3. Click Modify on the Edit menu.
4. Type none in the Value data box, and then click OK.
5. Quit Registry Editor.

I have also read on a few reputable sites of a quick fix that involves opening a command prompt and typing the following:

regsvr32 /i shell32.dll
