    I have a laptop with 3 hard drive partitions running on XP home. These are
    C,D,E. The C and E drives have the normal hard drive icon when I go into My
    Computer, but the D drive has the icon that you get when windows does not
    know what to open a file with. If I click on D it tries to open a game that
    was previously in the CD drive. The only way I can get into the D drive is
    to right click and select "Explore"....any ideas how to sort this out?

    Be sure to clear your recent documents list.
    Find and delete the file ShellIconCache (no extension) and
    reboot.
