Mapped Drive Opens Notepad

Had a client that when they opened a mapped drive on a network on a pc that it would start a notepad. I found this on the Internet to solve this problem.

Search the registry for a key called MountPoints2. When you find the key for the drive that has been mapped expand and you will see shell key. Delete the shell key and this will resolve the issue.
