Nick writes in with a troubleshooting question
Question:When I click on my D & E drives it does not open directly. A window appears and prompts me to OPEN WITH - “choose the program you want to use to open this file”. Please give me a solution.... Nick
Answer: You may want to try to re-register a certain dll file to get this to work again. Click on Start, Run and type regsvr32 /i shell32.dll and click ok.
Another process is to delete the autorun.inf file on each drive. Make sure that Windows Explorer is set to show all hidden and protected files.
Next find and delete the file named Autorun.inf in the drive's root. Then logoff the computer and log back in. You may need to make a blank autorun.inf and put it in the root of each drive if that doesn't work. To do this you can open Notepad, leave it blank and do a Save As and name it autorun.inf.
There is also a utility called FixDrive which is supposed to fix this problem. We have not tested it so use it at your own risk.
