Folder Problem Please Please Please Help. :(

Well I have a problem. When you open windows explorer, and go to folder
options, there is a tab called file types. There is a file type called File
Folder. Then on the advanced button not far below from it i click it and it
opens and says edit file type. The actions only include "find". I can't do
anything to it. I want to put open there. Thats why when I open any
folders, the search pops up. I know there is a registry thing you can change
but I am too scared to change registry because my father a computer masters
engineer warned me against it. Any tips??? Freaked out and annoyed because
everytime I want to open a folder i have to right click it and either press
open or explore. Annyoying! Help. Please

Yeah, Is there any alternative? Or can you assure me that these links are
safe to my lovely computer? I read the first link before. That's why I was
a bit scared to it when my Microsoft Antispyware started warning me about
allow or block. After i allowed it, then another "scary" message came up
warning me about some corrupt thing and I canceled it freaked out.
