    Hi alexle500 and welcome to TSG

    Could you confirm that you are talking about a program and not a document, please? Or are you talking about different drives?

    Try this fix: EXEFIX

    Unzip the fix and extract the .REG file to the Desktop. Right-click the .REG file and choose Merge. Note that you need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

    Reboot the computer.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
