    Can you help, i'm unable toopen my local disk C.
    Each time i click onto it it opens up desktop search. I've unindtalled desktop search and tryied to open local disk again but still no joy.

    So the problem i've got is that i unable to access my file and folder in the disk drive. Even my external HDD is the same it opens up desktop search.

    I think that the problem may have occured when i was trying to remove an icon. This was the advice i was given by trend micro as i was unable to remove there icon, as there icon replaced my HDD icon. Below is what they told me to do, hope you can help Thanks.


    Please go to Start > Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types > Select the Drive Icon > Advanced > Change Icon > Set it back to the original icon and click on OK.

    Kind regards,

    Mark,

    That won't help, cause it will only maybe change the drive icon

    try
    go to Start > Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types > Select the Drive Icon > Advanced >
    in the "actions" section, it should only say "find"
    mark "find"
    then click " set default"

    and remove any other entries.
    ok
    test it
    if it dont help
    maybe reboot
    test again.
