I have XP

i have two hard drives c drive and a j drive. I can open the c drive fine and i can see all of my folders. However when i go to the j drive and try to open it it takes me to a box that says open with then i have to chose a program to open the drive. i cannot just double click for it to open.

I have recently removed a trojan from this drive and ever since this has been removed im unable to open the drive

any suggestion.

What does it say about the J: drive in the Disk Management page?

Is the J drive a separate physical disk or just another partition on the same physical disk as the C drive?

Did you create the J drive or did someone else create it?

i added another hard drive to the computer

When you go to the box that says 'choose a program to open with' you may also find that there is a tick box that says 'always use this' or similar.

Check the box and it should then always associate that program with the function selected.

i have chosen to open with ie but the tick box is grey'd out

it is explorer you should be using to open it with, and not IE (internet explorer).

yeah sorry i am using explorer but is there a way i can just double click on it to work?

Why not remove your stuff of the drive then delete the Partition and repartition and format it using disc manager
