Windows 7: Browse for Folder dialog broken (Wont display the folder tree at all)

Browse for Folder dialog broken (Wont display the folder tree at all)

The Browse For Folder dialog broke for whatever reason and I cant link it to anything specific I have done.

Please see image. The left is what I get, right is what I should see. The issue is some programs I use don't have the box for manually typing the location so I cant use them, I cant select location to save files etc.
Any help fixing this? In what direction I should look?

(Please no reinstall Windows etc. Thanks)

BTW: I have another healthy machine next to me so I could maybe compare registry entries, or files which are different. If anyone knows what I should look for please let me know.

Edit: This is Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Seems like I was too quick to post. I looked again and found a solution.

I did a SFC /SCANNOW and it works now! Please excuse me for creating another thread with the same issue.

"Browse for Folder" dialogs appear blank

Hey there. I have a media library with, surprisingly enough, media in it! Videos to be exact. Each of the sub-folders have in them videos as well as .nfo files for displaying data awesomeness in the likes of XBMC. However, I do not like the way it makes my folders look when I browse to them in...

Has any one seen this before? http://alterion.us/screenshot/Nothing.jpg I cannot navigate c: in any Browse for Folder Dialogs after an initial folder has been selected and browse is used again. It is 'stuck' in the last folder used with no way to traverse the drive the folder actually resides...

have the address bar display the folder tree like Windows XP
I wish there was a way to have the address bar display the folder tree like Windows XP did instead of the "previous locations" it does now which is utterly useless to me. I don't even use it because it really displays nothing to help in navigation.

Music folder display vs folder content display
Is there a way I can set this up so that when I open my Music folder that the sub folders inside are displayed in list view but when I open a sub folder the content is displayed in detail view without the whole thing reverting back to the last view I opted for? In other words...when I open my Music...

Windows Explorer Folder Tree
Is it possible to have the windows explorer folder tree follow the path one extends? If I enter a subfolder by dubbel clicking on it in the files-pane, I want that folder to become expanded in the treeview as well, ie. as both Vista and XP did.
