[Solved] Strange Windows Explorer Error (WinXP)

It seems as if my "Up One Level" button has gone missing, and I'm not sure why.

I've tried restarting explorer to no effect. Its a minor thing but kind of annoying. I've scanned for virus' etc, and nothing seems to be the matter there, so I'm not sure how it happened.



Anyone know any registry tricks to get it back to the default?

    Can you try this first?

    1.) Right click on a blank space in the menu. You should untick "Lock the Toolbars"
    2.) Little tab things you can grab should appear beside "File" and the "Back" button.
    3.) Grab and drag the back button down below the "File" menu.
    4.) Right click and tick "Lock the Toolbars" again.

    That worked! That was easy, ha. I wonder what caused it to do that? I'm the only one who uses the computer, and I didn't do it by mistake.

    Anyway.. thanks!
