Windows 7: How to disable Windows Explorer's "today, yesterday, last week" groups in Explorer

I have been fighting this problem for a few months now and finally found the answer.
Your folder options for current sub folder is set to "picture mode".
From what I've found there is only one place this can be reset.
Go to the root folder, or at least one level up and right click on the folder.
Click on "Properties"
Click on "Customize"
The top option is labelled "Optimize This folder For"
The drop down menu will list four options including "Pictures" which you DO NOT want.
Select "General Items" and apply.
You're welcome!

can't get the correct menu for start task manager

it has no view as to what is running so obviously no choice to terminate a program. How do i get the correct menu for that?
