I can't access network drive by double click

Hi all,

I can't access my mapped network drive by double clicking it in my computer, i get an error message saying "Windows cannot open this file, to open this file windows needs to know what program created it".

I can access the network drive by right clicking it and choosing explorer.

Hope someone can help.


Regards


Jemal

It sounds to me like an autorun.inf file on the disk thats trying to execute something.
Right click, select explore and delete or rename autorun.inf
