Hard Disk Volume doesn't open normally...

Last Modified: 2012-06-09
Dear friends !

I have a very simple problem but I didn't get the right solution for my problem. I had posted my question three to four days before but I am still looking for the solution.

This is first time I faced this problem. I have three partition of my single physical hard disk. (The partitions are C:, D: and E:). C: is boot and system partition. Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 is installed as Operating System. Everything was working well.

But...for some days...when I try to open these partition by double clicking on them, I find the same Open with option that we can find when running an application which doesn't have supported application software or have many application software that support that application.

I think that you understood what I am saying. When you have RealPlayer, Vloc and default Windows Media Player installed in your computer, you can use any of these program for running video or audio clips. For that you will just have to right click the video file and select Open With...

The same Open With Option comes when I try to open any of my three partitions by double clicking on them.

I have scanned the PC with antivirus and it has detected virus and deleted them. I also used repairing of Operating System but it didn't work.

I had posted the same problem earlier but couldn't find the solution.

I didn't try Winternal's ERD Commander. WIll it work in this scenerio ? Please help me in this regard.
