Windows 7: Something at the top of windows explorer

Something at the top of windows explorer

There's a space in Windows Explorer at the top of the My Documents library, that highlights all the folders when I hover over it. It just appeared there, and I don't know why.

I've included two screenshots below. The My Documents shot illustrates the trouble, and the My Pictures shot illustrates the how I would like the My Documents library folder to be.

Help!

Right click anywhere in the folder to open the context menu, hover over Group by then select (None).

I use that often, it's a great feature for splitting certain folders into sections by file type. My BSOD folder would be a mess without it!
