Whenever I double-click on any drive/folder in My Computer, a Search window opens.
SOLUTION:

Open regedit and goto following keys one by one:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
In right-side pane, delete the "Default" key. If it doesnt work then delete the key "find" under
both.

Whenever I open a folder, another folder with the same name is created under it.

SOLUTION:
Your system is infected by a variant of Indonesian virus called Brontok/Rontokbro. It
creates a sub-folder in a folder with same name. Most of the times it comes from mobile memory
cards. Scan with a good anti-virus and remove the virus. Also download HijackThis and scan your
system with it in Safe Mode, then fix following entries:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\SSVICHOSST.exe
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe SSVICHOSST.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Yahoo Messengger] C:\WINDOWS\system32\SSVICHOSST.exe
O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1
You can also post the log file contents here and I'll tell you which entries should be fixed

Whenever I double-click on any drive in My Computer, "Open with" dialog box opens
OR I get following error message:
Cannot find copy.exe.
 Make sure you have typed the name correctly and then try again.

SOLUTION:
 Enable "Show hidden files" option in "Tools -> Folder Options" and then search for
"Autorun.inf" file in all drives and if you get them in root of any drive (e.g. in C:\, D:\ and so
on), delete them.

Whenever I start my computer, My Documents/My Computer opens automatically at
windows startup.

SOLUTION:
Open regedit and goto:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
In right-side pane, change value of "Userinit" to:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,
NOTE: If you have windows installed in other drives, then change C:\ to that drive label.
Now goto:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Advanced
In right-side pane, change value of "PersistBrowsers" to 0
Now log off windows and it should solve the problem.

Changing the Registered Owner and Registered Organization



If you want to change the registered owner and organization:

Start Regedit

   1.  For 32-bit - Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

   2.  For 64-bit - Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

   3.  From here change the RegisteredOwner and RegisteredOrganization

Suddenly my taskbar is showing only icons in all opened application buttons. I can't
see any text. How can I get back the full taskbar buttons?


SOLUTION:


Open regedit and goto:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

In right-side pane, delete "MinWidth" value.
