    Explorer folder control (XP Pro SP2)

    I know this is not really a windows created problem. But ever since I installed Lavasoft's Ad-Aware SE Pro each time I double click a Folder on the Right side of the Windows Explorer screen instead of Opening this folder it instead scans it with Ad-Aware. I tried adding to the File Options to "Open" using Windows Explorer, but now it opens a new instance of Windows Explorer every time, so just uninstalling AD-Aware will not solve my problem. Can someone please tell me where in the registry to correct this as I can't even seem to delete the file Options I added?
    Thanks Doc

    I'm afraid I don't have the pro version to check against, but could it be this setting here within AdAware?

    I found out how to stop the scanning, but still need to locate the registry control as I am still having issues with Windows XP power tool "Open Command Window Here" And on the right side of the windows screen this command is taking priority over the "Explore" command. So I still need to fix the registry control. But can't seem to find the required settings.

    Why not do a System Restore to a time before you installed Adaware ?? That should set everything right again.

    Try opening explorer and then selecting View > Folder Options > File Types > Folder > Advanced
    When I do this I see Open and Explore as the only options, but I guess you have others too.
    Select the one you want and click the set default button.

    Tried that but the ones I want to get rid of will not hi-lite the delete button. So far I have ended up reloading the entire system from scratch. I installed the Open Command Window Here toll early in the installation process and it seems to work as expected. but it would still be nice to know where it is hidden.

    Thanks the the help attempts.
