Got a weird problem. My file menu, address bar, and navigation buttons are completely missing from My Computer!

This is what My Computer looks like now:

There isn't even any place to right-click. The whole area of toolbars is missing. And it happened suddenly, the computer froze up for a moment while opening a new window and then the window opened without them. And now all windows are like that.

IE works fine though, it's only happening in My Computer. Any ideas?

try using a system restore point to go back to the most recent point just before the problem occurred.
