Windows 7: Can't move folders or files inside Explorer

Can't move folders or files inside Explorer

Desktop is ok..

But i don't have the black separator when i try to move files or folders opening explorer & c:\
none can be moved (between folders or files), & drag & drop doesn't show the "move" option
in the same folder when i try to order files or folders differently in the same window .. .

I only get move option if i simulate a move/hovering on another folder .. .
but the aim is to put them elsewhere in the same folder .. .

I don't even have "auto arrange" or "align" submenu option inside explorer
(it's present on the desktop)

I'm lost
