Windows 7: Problem with navigation pane

Problem with navigation pane


I have a weird problem with navigation pane. In most of programs the navigation pane is empty (see attached screenshot). It is kind of annoying, every time i have to click on a folder content and then "backup" to where I want to go. Does anyone have this problem or know a solution? Please help.

Best regards.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

First, you need to make sure Malware is not affecting your system. Download this,

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1 -

install it, update the database and run a FULL scan.

If it finds anything, post the log here.
