When you try to open any of the drives on your PC, instead of opening it so that you can see the files, it opens an Open With box instead.

Try the following to fix this issue:

  1. Right-click on the problematic drive and select Explore. This should open the drive.

  2. Look for anything related to AUTORUN on it. Like an autorun.inf file. (You may need to Show All Hidden and System Files on the drive in order to see everything.)

  3. Delete any autorun.inf or autorun related files on the drive.
