1.  When ever I go to control my computer and double click on anything to open it I search comes up instead of just opening the folder.  I do I change this so it just opens the folder.

2 When I double click a zip file on my desktop to open it adobe reader comes up

1. You haven't explained the problem very clearly, but I think you mean the actions/commands of the context menus may not be right. There's a similar thread here:

Does this help?

2. The file association of zip files may be incorrect. Right-click on the file, choose 'open with', then 'choose program'. Scroll down the list to find your zip program and select it.
Make sure to put a tick in the box to 'always use this program'.
