:tazz: For some reason, my Windows XP with Service Pack 2 "My Computer" window has suddenly changed its appearance ON ITS OWN! Originally, regardless of which View (Icon, Tile, etc.) was used, the "My Computer" window was divided into three sections marked: "Files Stored on This Computer", "Hard Disk Drives", and "Devices with Removable Storage". Now, all of a sudden, these section dividers have all DISAPPEARED and all of the "My Computer" views just show the Files, Drives, and Devices BY THEMSELVES, without any section divisions! The only thing I have done since the last time the "My Computer" window had divisions in it was to completely remove and redownload Mozilla Firefox (removing all of its original Documents and Settings Folders first), which I can't imagine caused this problem. Does anyone know what has happened, and how to fix it, if necessary? Thanks! :)

Hi MarshallO...

Try a System Restore to a time before you removed Firefox and see if that restores your settings.
