Looks like the 'Extended Tile' view that's available to the Sync Center
somehow got applied to your 'Computer' folder.
It's tied up with your saved folder views now, so the quick fix is to delete
all saved views. To do this:
Close all folders.
Start Search -> regedit<enter>
and delete the two subkeys named 'BagMRU' & 'Bags'
Log off & back on before opening any folders.
If you've worked long & hard on your folder views and don't want to lose
them all, Let me know & I'll post a more surgical solution.
