Hey, so I have a strange problem. I just modified the size of several of my partitions yesterday using partition Magic 8.0 on a Windows XP-32 system. Now, when I am in iTunes, and right click a file and click "show song file" which should open the folder containing the selected mp3 file and highlight it, it now simply opens up the Partition Magic program. Anyone ever experienced this or have any hints for me as to what might be going on and how to fix this? Thanks.

I did a repair. No luck. However, I noticed that it does not do this for all the files. For about half of them, it shows the folder like it's supposed to, and for the other half, it brings up partition magic. Upon examination, I don't see any clear similarities between the files that work and the ones that don't. They're all on the same drive.

Edit: Also, I just noticed this as well. After Partition Magic comes up, if I leave it open for about 5 minutes. The folder for that song that incorrectly launched PM will show up, albeit in explorer mode (not my usual viewing mode). Too strange. Anyone have any ideas?
