before this, you got to make sure ur pc is clean from virus.

after that to resolve this problem, you need to get down to registry section.

1. open the registry using regedit.
2. goto HKEY_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/MountPoints2
3. you will see some folder with the name like this "{11b586dc-4495-11dc-86b1-0015c5683d77}"
4. explore everyone of it and you shall found a folder call shell under each of them.
5. click on the each shell folder and you will notice 1 of the Default value is set to "Open". modify the value back to none.
6. Mission Completed.

IT DOES WORK

I HAD EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM, WHEN DOUBLE CLICKING ON MY LOCAL DRIVE, I GOT A SELECT PROGRAM MESSAGE. I HAD TO MODIFY MORE THAN 1 OF THE DEFAULT VALUES ON SHELL FOLDERS. NOW I CAN EXPLORE MY LOCAL DISK.

Slightly Different...

What I had to do was slightly different, all of those default values said 'Auto', so I changed all of those to say 'none'. Works brilliantly thank you!
