I had some problems, first with usb harddrive, then with C drive, prompting me to select a program in "Open with" dialogue box. Some of the solutions I read on the net were too technical for me, for fear of creating myself further problems. Through good luck I needed to attach a file to an email. I selected attach, then browse, and I decided to see what would happen if I selected My Computer, then C drive in that dialogue box. I did this and C drive information was displayed. Later when I was out of the mail account, I tried My Computer and C drive again and it worked fine.
With the external harddrive, I managed to access it through ITunes as it contained music. Later when I tried through My Computer it worked normal again.
Maybe, opening C drive and the harddrive through another means corrected the problem.
Worth a thought before you start playing around with more technical methods.
