Hi, check if Navigation panel is checked or not.

To do this open any window go to Organize ==>Layout and then check the option Navigation Pane.

Keep us posted.

Yes it is checked, once I uncheck it the white space to the left goes away. I check it again and the same white space appears back.

check your system for virus, Run anti malware as soon as possible. This can be a virus attack.

Have you also checked for Spywares and malwares? Use Spybot- Search and destroy. Install this, run the program and reboot your PC.

Ok I downloaded the program, installed, and scanned. It found nothing. After I restarted the same problem was there.

Have you checked for system file corruptions?

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

Report the output from the command window once it finishes.

More detail: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
