Could we get your system specs?

Have you done any resource.dll mods, or modded any other aspect of the OS? Which OS?

Same problem here

Sorry for the thread from the dead, but I'm experiencing the same problem. Windows 7 ultimate 64 unmodified. I see dates instead of names in some dialogs but not all of them, and when you click on a file, the name shows correctly in the file name box. Any ideas?

I have found the solution to this problem. Right click inside the folder, go to properties. In there, go to customize. In there it says something about optimize this folder for blah blah Set that to general. Mine was set to pictures. For some reason having it set to pictures screws up the way files are displayed.
