The file type for Folder objects is wrong, you can change it under Folder Options, File Types. You should have two actions: explore, open and set open as default.

I understand your reply and I am having this exact issue with my two hard drives, but the only actions I have are explore with paintshop pro x and find. How do I get these actions you mentioned back?

I had the Same problem

by TINS In reply to but how?

1) open My Computer> Tools> Folder Options> File Types > Drive, click advanced and make a new command, name it open and direct it to explorer.exe (open in the action box and explorer in app used), set open as the default.

2) Now where going to delete open from the registry. So go to > start>run>regedit.exe, locate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Drive\shell\Open\
and delete this folder. Problem fixed.
