Windows 98 Explorer does no more display detailed list

Suddenly, the Explorer refused to display a detailed list of the files
I can display bu Large Icons, Small icons, and List.
But if I attempt to display Details, I just get a blank window.
I looked into the Registry :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \Explorer \
Advanced

But the values are the same as they are in a colleague's computer.

Does anyone happen to know where this problem comes from?

Thank you in advance.

Look in the upper right corner of the detail list box (on the bar where you
would normally see the title headings like Name and Date) for two small arrows
pointing left and right. Click on the left one a few times and see if anything
happens. If not, try the right arrow.

Oops - never mind. I was thinking of Netscape mail. Sorry. I don't know what
would cause only the details view to be empty.
