my (My Computer) folder no longer has the default display style where it's separated into drives, and folders for my documents. it changed suddenly for no reason. so i tried to do display properties, all of the tabs work except for the desktop tab, when i press on it, the system hangs and and when i check the task manger it says that rundll32.exe is taking. 50%process power and it can not display the desktop tab. It's not a spyware or virus issue. it's my standalone system...

Click Start then Run...type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour). When it's finished, click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r (Again...note the space) and reboot when prompted (type Y and press Enter). This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.

What happens when you click "View" in the toolbar and select "Tiles"?
