folder_open.vbs- Fixes the problem where Search or Command Prompt opens when double clicking a folder
© Doug Knox - rev 02/09/2002

Occasionally the Registry entry for File Folders (Directories) gets corrupted.  One effect of this can be that Search or a Command Prompt opens when you double click on a folder in Explorer, rather than the folder opening.   This VB Script will make the necessary change to the system Registry to correct this. 

Usage: Download folder_open.vbs and save this file to your hard drive. Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file. A confirmation dialog will appear when finished.  This script can be viewed in Notepad or any text editor, as to the specific Registry key and value that are updated.
