Default My Computer Folder problem

Hey everyone,
I'm running Windows XP and usually the 'My Computer' menu has all the folders in one section, the drives in another, and the devices in another. Earlier today i realized that it had changed. I don't know how, but it now looks like this,

I've tried restoring defaults and everything but nothing has changed....any thoughts???

Thanks,
Hockeyrino

ok, that solved half of it, now one of the categories are labeled 'unspecified'. its the section of my folders. Any way to change it?
BTW thanks for the quick response.


EDIT:
Nevermind, i got it back by going to View>Arrange Icons By>Type
and they all went back to normal.

Thanks again,
Hockeyrino
