This could be a problem with the upperfilter and/or lowerfilter setting in the registry. If you're not squeamish about tinkering with the registry, do this:
1. Go into Help and Support on the start menu, then click on "undo changes to your system with System Restore" and create a new restore point. This way, you've backed up your registry in case you mess anything up!
2. start RegEdit by going to Start-Run, then type in regedit and hit okay.
3. Follow these steps (copied from MS, they actually spell it out pretty well). Note that you may not have a lowerfilters setting. In typical MS style, they make you do the same series of steps twice, but if you DO have both upper & lowerfilters, you'll see them once you're in the registry at the key they tell you to go to. You don't really have to Step 3 numbers 1-4, since you'll still be in the correct area.
Don't worry, it's really pretty easy to do if you take it step by step:
