If this issue is only relevant in the My Computer folder I would ensure you do not have any viruses or other malicious software installed.

Also, check your mouse setting for the double-click function

START>CTRL PANEL>PRINTERS & OTHER HARDWARE>MOUSE (XP View)

START>CTRL PANEL>MOUSE (Classic View)

Then on the BUTTONS tab there is a section for Double Click speed with a folder icon for testing it out. Make sure it is set as required for your use.

How do i burn a dvd from my external unit to my burner in my laptop


Depends on what operating system you have............

1) Left-click on Start > My Computer
Look at the drive letter that corresponds with the external drive.
It may be E:, or F:, or G:, or so forth.

[ D: drive is usually reserved for the optical drive in your laptop. C: drive is the Harddrive ]

2) Double-click on the drive letter
Open the folder you want, (Double-click on it), Right-click on the file name, Left-click on Copy


Vista and Win7:
1) Click on the Windows logo button
2) Click on Computer
3) Double-click on the drive letter that corresponds with the external drive
4) Double-click on the folder you want (Open), Right-click on the file name, Left-click on Copy.


Don't know what drive letter corresponds?
Look at the drive letters with a device listed to the right.
Memorize, or write down the drive letter that has a device listed to the right of it.

Turn the laptop off. (Properly)
Unplug the external unit.
Turn the laptop on, and go to My Computer. (Computer)

What drive letter no longer has a device listed to the left of it?
That is the drive letter you want.

Laptop off, plug the drive back in again. Turn the laptop on, and proceed with the above instructions.

No drive letter matching up to your external drive?

When I install Itunes this is the Error message I get verify access npitunes.dll C:\Program Files\iTunes\Mozilla Plugins\npitunes.dll


General installation troubleshooting Important: iTunes installation is successful a majority of the time after completing these troubleshooting procedures. If one step does not resolve your issue proceed to the next.
1. Empty your Temp directory and restart
Windows XP:
  1. Choose Start > My Computer (or double-click My Computer on the Desktop).
  2. In My Computer or Computer, open the "C:" drive.
  3. Open Documents and Settings.
  4. Double-click the folder titled with your username.
  5. If you see a Local Settings folder, skip to step 10. If you don't see a Local Settings folder, proceed to the next step.
  6. Choose Tools > Folder Options.
  7. Click the View tab.
  8. Select the option to "Show hidden files and folders."
  9. Click OK.
  10. Double-click Local Settings.
  11. Right-click on the Temp folder and choose Delete.
  12. In the confirmation dialog that appears click Yes.
  13. If you are unable to delete the Temp folder, close all programs, especially those in the Notification area ("System Tray") of the Windows Task bar and repeat step 11.
  14. Restart your computer.
Windows Vista and Windows 7:
  1. Choose Start > Computer
  2. In Computer, open the "C:" drive.
  3. Open the Users folder.
  4. Double-click the folder titled with your username.
  5. If you see an AppData folder, skip to step 10. If you don't see an AppData folder, proceed to the next step.
  6. Choose Organize > Folder and Search Options.
  7. Click the View tab.
  8. Select the option to "Show hidden files and folders." (In Windows 7 this option will be called "Show hidden files, folders, and drives").
  9. Click OK.
  10. Double-click the AppData folder to open it. If Windows needs your permission to continue click Continue.
  11. Double-click the Local folder to open it.
  12. Right-click on the Temp folder and choose Delete.
  13. In the confirmation dialog that appears click Yes.
  14. If you are unable to delete the Temp folder, close all programs, especially those in the Notification area ("System Tray") of the Windows Task bar and repeat step 12.
  15. Restart your computer.
2. Completely remove iTunes and QuickTime
For Windows XP, follow instructions in Remove and Reinstall iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP.
For Windows Vista or Windows 7, follow instructions in Remove and Reinstall iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista.
Note: Songs you purchased from the iTunes Store or imported from CDs are saved in your My Music folder by default and are not deleted by removing iTunes.
3. Install the latest version of iTunes
Once you have completed the above steps to Empty your Temp directory, Completely remove iTunes and QuickTime, and Clean up iTunes installer files on the computer, you can install the latest version of iTunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download.
Additional troubleshooting Make sure you have administrator-account access To install iTunes or QuickTime software, you need to be logged in as an administrator on the computer. If you're not sure if you have administrator-account access, contact the owner of the computer or your system administrator.
Get the latest Windows updates The first thing to do when troubleshooting an installation issue on a Windows computer is make sure you have the latest Microsoft Windows updates installed—to get the latest updates, go to the Microsoft Windows Update page.
iTunes and QuickTime software for Windows require Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Windows Vista with latest Service Pack installed.
Disable other conflicting software In Windows, some background processes can cause issues for other programs and processes. These conflicts can prevent applications such as iTunes and QuickTime Player from installing. See Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows XP or Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows Vista and Windows 7 for assistance disabling conflicting processes.
Additionally, some third-party security software cannot be disabled using Selective Startup (MSConfig). Because of this, it may be necessary to temporarily manually disable such software while troubleshooting installation. For assistance in configuring or disabling your security software, please contact the manufacturer.
Make sure your folder names don't contain strange characters If the iTunes installer (iTunesSetup) is not responding or appears frozen after launching the installer then the folder where the installer is stored may contain unusual characters. If you notice that the iTunes installer or stored in a folder like this, either rename the folder or move the iTunes installer to another location such as the Desktop before launching.
More help If these steps don't help, you may be able to find a solution to your issue by searching the Microsoft support website.

Opening of drives


I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).

In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: -
Microsoftpowerpoint.exe
smss.exe
.... or many others.

It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.

You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.

To resolve the issue do the following:
1) Open My computer program or windows explorer.
2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it.
3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.

Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.

NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.
