    Ok heres what I tried to do, I got some new icons, and I was assigning them to different things. I went to a folder, went to Tools>Folder Options>File Types. the second icon down is the hard drive. so i reassigned it. now whenever i double click the drive I get a cmd prompt. (see attached) I tried to reassign the drive to the shell32.dll no luck. I can access the drive by right clicking and going to explore and so forth, but i really would like to be able to double click.

    I just looked in mine and I have the following;

    Drive

    Actions:
    find
    Open Command Window Here


    I also have a check-mark in "Confirm open after download".


    What happens if you highlight "find" and press "Set Default"?

    I just set "Open Command Window Here" as the Default. Now I'm screwed like you. Damn. :mad:

    I'm going to try and reboot my system 1st, and if that doesn't work, I'll do a system restore. Maybe that will work.

    I didn't see your post in time. System Restore did work.

    I don't have a Reset Button in my "File Types" section.
    Where you talking about the "Restore Defaults" under the "General" Tab?

    I'm running XP Home, maybe that feature is missing.

    I have just messed up the file association between the HD and the icon, if I reset it to default it works fine, sorry for the problems with your system.... i really didn't mean to cause any harm.

    Everything works fine now. I was the one who chose to experiment, it wasn't your fault.

    There is a free icon tweaking program you might want to try out.
    It's called ActivIcon v3.20 www.cursorarts.com

    The problem with Windows XP right now is you are not allowed to change individual Drive Icons, you can change their Shortcuts though.
    I haven't tried to change my Hard Drive Icons, but I have changed my Removable Disk Icons. Now remember, when you change one Removable Disk Icon, ALL Removable Disk Icons will change.

    I hope this makes since.

    I don't know if this issue will be fixed in SP1 or not.
