    question Windows Explorer is opening multiple explorer

    There is some problem with my windows XP Windows Explorer, Earlier I use the same CD to install windows XP and it works fine but now there is a problem, I have installed XP again and again and after installing whenever I am opening My Computer it is opening, but when I tried to open any Drives(C:, D:, E:, F:, all the partitions of my HD) it is opening "open with" window and When I browse to explorer it is opening but the option "use this program as default" is greyed out, so every time I have to browse till explorer and then open Drives.
    I have used Disk Heal Software and it have resolved this issue, but now when I open any Drive or folder, it is opening in a new window, so lots of windows explorer and opening if I have to open many folders, I have checked all the options in Folder Options and Registry, What to do now, I cannot full format the Hard Disk as There are lot of Imp Data in My laptop.
