Create a shortcut to windows exlorer.
Right click the icon and click properties.
On the shortcut tab enter this for your target:
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e, <directory>

where <directory> is the folder you want windows explorer to open by default.
i.e. to open the c drive be default , use the following:

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e, c
