    Okay so I had some of the same problems, just got it fixed.


    So I've had this problem for quite a while now. I tried installing several stuff for my minecraft client as I was going to play it on a LAN-Party. To do this I had to enter %appdata%. Whenever I tried running it in "Run". It told me "How do you want to open this file?". For some odd reason whenever I started up my pc too I got this message.
    Today my spotify started acting weird, it closed itself. Opened again and closed. It kept on doing this forever. I searched for it and found out I had to run another command in "Run" %APPDATA%\Spotify\spotify.exe --disable-accelerated-layers --disable-accelerated-fixed-root-backgroundBut once again it said: "How do you want to open this file?"
    After searching around about 10 minutes I tried several stuff, but what seemed to fix it for me was: Running: "C:Users" and then there was a file with My own name which I deleted.
    And guess what? Now I can open %appdata% and run the spotify command.
    Just thought I would share how I fixed it as it has been bothering me for a while. Hope this helps anyone!

    I found the same file by choosing internet explorer when I was asked how to open "the file" on startup, and looking at the file path in the address bar. Deleting the file seems to be temporary - I just had to go delete the same file again after deleting it a day or two ago...
