After upgrading from Win 3.1 to 95, my "My Computer" associates my hard drive with an application. When I double-click on the drive icon, it opens the application. I deleted the application and now get an error message. I can view the drive contents by using File-Open.

Check your root directory. There is a file called AUTORUN.INF
Delete it.

Johnt's answer was correct. With all the inadequate knowledge on computer subjects these days, it's refreshing to get truly expert information. It's also amazing to get such advice so quickly. Johnt is to be commended. Thanks a million. I'll tell everyone I know about the experts exchange.

Thanks. Now, you just need to know who or what put that AUTORUN.INF in your root directory.
