Default ahh, I have a problem

I have a dell dimention b110.
smoething has changed.
One:
When I click on the start button and I see in the upper right section.
My documents.
my pictures.
my music.
my computer.
and where pictures is, it used to be "my samples"
How do I get that back?
Second problem is:
when I click on "my documents" there used to be a set of stuff that was on the left hand side of the page that said.
File and folder tasks.
make a new folder.
publish to the web.
share folder.
move to folder.
Other places.
and so on.
How do i get that back as well.
And also, when I click on control panel the page that opens has all the icons showing with discriptions of what they are.
It used to just have about 6 different things to click on, like security, mouse, performance etc.
any ideas what I did ?
I am by far a comp. wizz but I must have done something to change whatever.
any help will be greatly appreateated

Why does your toolbar look like crap?

Use royale noir.

Ok, did that. Here is what I am figuaring. I can not change out of clasic veiw in doc's or the control pannell.
No matter how I go about it.
the option to go to ( show common tasks in folder) is right there and I can not click on it.
I restore default, It puts the black dod in the option show common tasks but the wording is hazey, not sharp black. I click apply , and right back to show clasic veiw.
What would keep me from changing this option?
On the other users name, I can click on control pannell and on the left the option to go to clasic veiw is there. and if I use it, I can also change it right back because the option is there in that task bar.
On my user name the option is not even there to change anything.
