    somehow whilst tidying up a few thing tonight i've somehow managed to
    mess things up and i need help
    when i open my documents and double click on a file instead of it
    opening a new window with search results opens , the only way i can
    open files now is by right click and using the drop down menu.
    please help....

    Reboot?

    Look at the help feature in your operating system, whatever operating
    system that may be.

    With the OS mentioned in X-HTTP-UserAgent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE
    7.0; Windows NT 5.1) you'd be best with doing a system restore to before
    the mess occured.
