I have a laptop, specifically an Asus R540L, where I'm facing an issue when trying to open the AppData folder using the Win + R shortcut and inserting
%appdata%. Instead of opening the folder, it displays the "Which application do you want to use to open this file?" screen, prompting me to select a program:
It tries to open a text-file with the following content:
Starting PC Finder Deinstallation ...
Missing pc finder deinstaller ... Delete C:\Users\Asus R540L\Desktop\CATEGORIZE-NOTEBOOK.bat ... End ...
The folder under
User\AppData\Roaming does exist, and I can access it manually through Windows Explorer. However, the Win + R method I described earlier doesn't work.
Do you have any ideas on how to resolve this issue?
P.S.: I am unable to perform a clean installation of Windows, so I would like to find a solution within the current system without reinstalling. It's also important to note that the "Which application do you want to use to open this file?" screen appears every time I start up the laptop.
