Panel Listings In Programs- How Do I Get Rid Of Them?

  1. Hi, I have a problem that I know is probably really easy to fix. When I open up programs like Control Panel, My Computer, etc. There are Panel Listings on the left hand side. The one in My Computer says system task, other places and details and there is drop down menus for each one. I would like to get rid of it. How do I do it?
    P.S.---- I already tried pressing the folders tab above but all that does is mask those menus. When I close the folders tab the screen doesn't go to just the drives you are supposed to see in My Computer it still shows the Panel Listings on the left side.

    Control Panel, Folder Options, General, select "use windows classic folders"...
