    Welcome to TSG!

    Check the Start Menu settings:
    Right click the Start button and then click Properties
    Click the Start Menu tab
    If it's set to Classic Start menu, My Computer will not appear, so tick Start Menu
    Click the Customize... button
    Click the Advanced tab
    Scroll the list and make sure My Computer is NOT set to Don't display this item

    As to why the page would be blank if the Explorer bar is not set to Folders, I have no idea.
