I'm running Windows ME, and when ever I open a folder, instead of finding the list of files in that folder, I get a screen that is entirely blank, except for a little square in the upper left hand corner.

I've tried switching views, refreshing the page, restarting the computer, trying in safe mode, and none of this worked.
This happened after I used Ad-Aware and HiJack This to remove some spyware, though that was nothing out of ordinary. Any help would be appreciated

Have you ever removed anything with Hijack This before? It can be tricky and if you remove the wrong thing, it can cause problems.

Yeah, I've used HiJack This quite extensively in the past, though I guess it's possible I did something by mistake.
It's no big deal though, as my problem has since been fixed. I reinstalled Windows on top of the current version, and it fixed the problem.
