Sorry late reply Rip had to duck out for a bit, Yes I do know what you mean and mine is as my pic and I can drag and drop mine as / when I like.

Have you tried any system checks yet if not maybe it would be as well to run these

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html > if there are any errors there are the options in Option 2 such as /f and /r

it is worth a try if only to eliminate them.

No need for the scans mate, in the upper right of any folder or Explorer window, click the icon shown. What you see is called the Preview Pane.

In that case you can still toggle Preview of then use the icon to the left to show large or extra large icons.

I really don't know why your is so wide, but shouldn't be virus related.
