    Hi guys, newbie here.

    I am having a problem with my dvd drive. the icon for any file has a internet explorer icon on top of it. It is there regardless of file type and "icon view" (thumbnail, list, etc)

    i reinstalled windows and it was normal, but as soon as i updated and re-installed all my programs the problem was back. here are some screenshots.

    any help would be appreciated as it is so annoying to view backed up photos.

    thanks

    Hiya and welcome

    I've moved you to the Multimedia forum for more response :)

    Which program are you using to view DVD's with? You said that its okay when you installed XP, but not when you installed your other programs. Are there any multimedia type programs installed (apart from the DVD player one)?

    Can you still play the files okay?

    Regards

    Strange thing to happen, but glad to see its all okay after uninstalling IE7. Have you reinstalled it again, or back on IE6?
