    I have a very inconsistent file sort problem. When I look at files through "My Computer" it seems that 1/2 the time the files are sorted z to a with the files at top and the folders at the bottom. This also occurs about 3/4 of the time in excel, access, etc. How can I be sure this won't happen. (I've already tried using the explorer and file types>views and selecting the option for all folders to look like the current one -- it didn't work.) I am using all xp products (office and windows.)

    In My Computer select a drive, View menu option, Details option, and click on the File Name heading, which will re-sort the files. Then you can change the view to whatever you like.
