Windows XP "My Computer" display has changed

Original Title: Windows XP "My Computer" looks funny.

 

Hi all. I installed my graphics driver, and now "My Computer" looks weird on Windows XP. It doesn't have the lables anymore. http://puu.sh/21bvR That is what it looks like. How can I make it look like this again? http://attachments.techguy.org/attachments/210703d1340287944/my_computer_p.jpg

 

Thanks
