In several applications, when I click on file/open my cd rom drive comes up in the Look in area.  It has my cd rom drive listed and then says it can't find anything (there is nothing in the cd drive).  How can I change the default to look in my c:\ drive.

Give this a go
Windows\inf\shell.inf Reset All Associations

The solution is to go to Windows\inf\shell.inf and right click on the inf file, then Click Install. This resets all associations to their default.

Let me know
