    Open drive not default in This Computer


    Hello!

    Excuse me if this has been asked before, I have a weird issue in This Computer. When I double-click a hard drive or other device, it tries to launch some unknown deleted application and fails with an error message (see below). If I right-click on the drive, I see that "cmd" is default instead of Open and I can proceed if I select Open. This issue occurs only in This Computer. Clicking any other folder on the desktop or elsewhere opens as expected. Could it be a malware? I'm now scanning with Malwarebytes Antimalware just in case. Any other ideas?

    Thank you in advance

    Hello!

    After trying Dism and sfc I was receiving an error in Dism that some files could not be fixed or similar. And of course the issue remained. So I decided to return to an earlier Restore Point. Thanks God, this did the job and now my system is back in proper working state. However, this is not considered a fix, so I won't mark the problem solved yet. Besides I would like to know what could be the cause. Anyone that can tell?

    Thank you in advance.
