It came up a couple of months ago either on this
list or on python-win32. Don't have web access
at the moment, but try searching the archives for
references to search, registry settings and probably
an msdn link. Now I think about it, try searching
for "xplorer2" since I think I mentioned that I have
used that instead of explorer for some while. That
should get you the thread at any rate.
