Whenever I open a network drive (for example : Z:\), the "Open with..." windows always pop up. I've tried other computer, some doesn't have the same problem as mine.
What's the solution ?

how bout this, when the "open with" window pops up, open it with "windows explorer" if it worked open the drive again and if the "open with" window pops up, select windows explorer and check the box "always use this selection" (something similar to that phrase) so it wont pop up again.

It doesn't allow me to tick on the "Always Use This Selection". It's grey in color.
