Windows 7 Folders in Numeric and Alphabetic Groups


I hope some can help me, I was filtering on my folders and somehow set the Number and Alphabetic Folder option on, so I now have my folder in:

A -H
I -P

I have spend hours trying to remove this but just can't do it.

Can some please help?

Many thanks
