C drive doesn't open with left click WinXP

By elementalor ·
We ran into a a clash with a bunch of viruses before, mostly recovered from those, but now when I try to open the c: drive with left clicks in My Computer it brings me to the 'Open with...' dialogue. The option to 'Always open with' is grayed out and right click to open or explore work fine.
This has been driving me crazy for a week or so now and effects two computers.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
