Could not open my Drive E

Hi,

I'm having this error every time I insert a USB Flash Disk, CD/DVD or any external storage that has a USB cord with it.
The file does not have a program associated with it for perform this action

"The file does not have a program associated with it for perform this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."

This also occurred when I am attempting to open picture attachments on my Outlook Express and other emails. A site advised to run an antivirus but it pulled up nothing. I want to know how I can create an association in the folder options control panel.
 
I tried using the USB disk to other computer and it works well. I searched on my computer for the folder options and found it by right-clicking My Computer then Explore then on the Tools tab I hit the Folder Option but I don't know what to edit or what to change in the settings to fix the error. Maybe this happens after an installation of Updates from Microsoft.
 
Because I can very well access all this without having problems before the updates. I am using Windows XP Service Pack 2 32-Bit OS.
 
I want to know a procedure on how to stop this error from appearing.
 
Please help me on this.

For the USB, try to update the associated drivers while for the CD/DVD, try opening the computer and check on the associated cable if they are well fixed and also try to look at the reader, it may be faulty.

Hi Benjamin,

The Outlook Express that currently installed in your system doesn’t know what to do with the attached file; it doesn’t recognize the file extension or the last characters that follow the past period in the filename in short the .pps.
 
All you need to do to fix this issue, is to repair your Microsoft office or uninstall your MS office and make a fresh install in your system.
 
Hope this can help.

Thanks guys for helping me. The problem is already fixed. I just format the USB then it works. I also uninstall then re-install MS-Outlook.
