    getting application not found when double clicking on dvd drive icon

    Hi all,

    I am getting e / application not found when I double click on dvd drive
    icon. This happens on every disk I have tried. Strangely enough if I leave a
    dvd or cd in the drive and reboot it reads the disk.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    How do I fix this?

    I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.

    Thanks in advance,

    Gordy

    Locate and click the following registry key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider On
    the Edit menu, click Permissions . Click the registry key for the user that
    is currently logged on and ensure that Read and Full Control are both set to
    Allow . Click the Advanced button, ensure that the user that is currently
    logged on is selected, that Full Control is listed in the Permissions
    column, and that This Key and Subkeys is listed in the Apply to column.
    Click to select the Replace permission entries on all child objects with
    entries shown here that apply to child objects check box. Click Apply , and
    then click Yes when you receive a prompt to continue. Click OK , and then
    click OK again
