By nayeem_eee ·
In windows 98,if I double click Local Disk (C:)in my computer, instead of opening it, the 'open with' box opens and asks me to select an application to open the file. I can still get into C drive by right clicking and selecting open or by entering the address in the address bar of explorer, but this is obviously more time-consuming.
Any ideas

A couple of thoughts

I have seen this when the computer has gone out to lunch and did not return... A cold start usually fixes it.

Other one is Virus/Malware. Run the scans in safe mode.

Autorun file

Look for an autorun.inf file in root of C: and delete it.
Also, check File Types in Folder Options for any extra actions (there only should be a 'find' action).

Is there a reason why you need to go into your C drive?

Most of your apps are within reach on your computer.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

a virus attack!

i am sure not maybe your system c has a virus that creates autorun.inf. use virus removal softwares to delete it or just simply go to folder options and enable view hidden files and system files and look for autorun.inf and delete it..do it as well to your other drives. and of course dont forget to empty your trash and for sure it will work just fine...that's a common problem of ours in here...gud luck!
