    hi there, i have an annoying problem

    when i double click on " My Computer" in the desktop it opens with the "folders" part open on the standard buttons i.e its just like right clicking and exploring . plus i also realised that right clicking on my computer has the explore option first, and then comes open.

    And also, when i double click on any of my drives in the "my computer" it pops up an error, and the right click option is again wierd, but different this time, the 1st option is autoplay, then comes open, then search then explore. The drive doesnt open with "open" and "autoplay" but only opens with exploring and not only , but the drive opens in a new window.

    Can i have help with a solution for this ? Thank you :)

    Forgot to mention:

    The error which pops up on Autoplay is: C:\resycled\boot.com is not a valid Win32 application

    and

    The error on "Open" is :E:\ is not a valid Win32 application <-- (that's the error which pops up on the E drive,likewise in the other drives but different drive names ofcourse)

    Download the file Elvandil gave you the link to and save it to your hard drive.

    Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file.

    A confirmation dialog will appear when finished

    Then let us know how it worked

    What are you trying to double click? Is it the CD or DVD drive, or the harddrive?

    If it is the CD/DVD drive, is it a data cd installed, a program disk or a video?

    Have you right clicked the drive, properties and chosen the autoplay options for the content?
