This fix is for Windows XP Home & Pro
In the future please state your Operating System when asking for help.

We are going to make some registry edits so be sure to backup the registry.

Go to:
Start>Run>(type) regedit

Backup the registry by:
1 - Highlight My Computer by clicking on it once.
2 - Click File (Windows XP) or Registry (Windows 2000), then Export
Registry File.
3 - Select export range All; to ensure your entire registry is backed up
completely.
4 - Select where you would like to save this backup, name the File, and
Click on the SAVE button.

Then:

Locate this Key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
Right Click Default (right side)>Click Modify>(type) none in the box>Click OK>Close the Registry Edit>Restart

This problem occurs when you open the Edit File Type dialog box for the Drive or File Folder registered file types. For example, this problem occurs for folders if you complete the following procedure:

1. Open the folder, and then click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
2. Click File Folder in the Register file types list, and then click Advanced.
3. After you perform this procedure, the None setting is removed from the value data for the Default string value in the following registry key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

NOTE: This problem occurs even if you do not create a new action, edit existing actions, or change the default action in the Edit File Type dialog box.

You're Welcome
Glad to Help :thumbsup:
