    Have you double clicked on an ISO file by any chance?

    A screenshot of the explorer window would have been better.

    Thanks Arc for your quick reply,I haven't clicked an ISO file and not savvy enough to post a screenshot but after some delving on my pc it would appear that it is my disc drive,just can't understand why it is suddenly showing in devices and drives alongside DVD /RW Drive (E) when I open file explorer.
