Unable to open any local drive................

By snaido ·
Hi all,

This is Snaido. I have a PC that runs with a 250 gb hard-disk and windows xp sp2 installed on it. Recently I had a few virus attacks and i formated my C: drive and installed the OS once again.

But The problem That i face now is that whenever I open 'My Computer' and try to open a local drive, I get an 'Open With' Box popping up. This happens when I double click on it or even when i right click and try to open it. But I am able to view its contents in windows explorer when I make a single click on the drive in the left pane of the explorer.

Please check the image below to know more about what i am talking about......

Please help.
