Recent Virus Damage - Help please

I recently had virus JS_FORTNIGHT.M which severely damaged the OS and web access. I managed to recover eventually by using a major repair but the problem has left me with one scar (I found to date) that I am unable to repair.

When double clicking on `My Computer` the window opens and shows icons but they are no longer organised into groups with headers (Files Stored On This Computer, Hard Disk Drives & Devices With Removable Storage) separated by lines as they were previously.

Can anyone please advise me how to get this back. I am running XP Pro.

Thanks in advance.

Arrange icons by
type (ensure 'show in groups' is ticked also)

That is in the 'My Computer' screen

All up and running now. Many thanks.

For any others that encounter this virus...

Perhaps I should have mentioned before; the virus disabled AVG, corrupted my Windows Product Activation file besides the additional damage to the OS.

Fortunately I keep a copy of Trend Micro Sys Clean upto date and it was that which eventually killed it and allowed a repair. Any attempt to repair prior to killing it was pointless as it did damage as the repair was taking place.
