"My Computer" lost "Open", has only "Find"

When "My Computer" is opened, I get the standard findfile dialog box.  Access to the normal open (or explorer) view is not shown.  A right-click offers only "Find".   Where O where has my "Open" gone, and how can I restore that function? (needed to share drives/files on my network)

Answer follows:
Copy the following text into a new text file and name it 'drivefix.reg'. Then double clikc this file in the explorer and a dialog should pop up notifying you of success.



@="%SystemRoot%\\Explorer.exe /idlarge,%I,%L %1"

@="[ViewFolder(\"%l\", %I, %S)]"






@="[ExploreFolder(\"%l\", %I, %S)]"




Hope this helps...
