Windows 7: i can't access to C: or D: - file association error

16 Feb 2011   #1

i can't access to C: or D: - file association error

i use win7 ultimate 32bit,

i can't access to C: or D:

everything else works perfect (like exe files,regedit,run etc)

i can get inside C: or D: via "right click + open" , but when i double click i get error called;
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

Tried complete scan with nod32+malwarebytes+spybot , no virus/worm/spy anything..

Any suggestions?
