Photoshop(s) giving weird problems suddenly.

I have two versions of Photoshop. CS3 and CS4. CS3 I use the most because I'm more familiar with the layout, where things are, etc. But suddenly, out of no where, the Open Folder started opening like (EXAMPLE A) instead of like (EXAMPLE B) -- (example B is in cs4, but how it's supposed to look in cs3 too). And clicking Thumbnail view doesn't fix it. It's acting so weird! Also, in CS4, one of the main reasons I hate to use it is because it has a "Show All Menu Items" when I select something (like Layer, on top), but when I go back to it, it's hidden again. Plus I don't like the layout in general, it's not like CS3.

Is there any way to fix these things? Thanks in advance.

RQ: The very best colorings for screencaps?

I've noticed a lot of people are popping up with these miraculous icon colorings from screencaps, and I'm usually pretty decent at picking apart colorings, but I am truly BAFFLED by these. I just don't get how someone can take screencaps and make them so... polished and beautiful. The color choices, the saturations, the small texture effects... Does anyone happen to know how to make icons like these?

(I've tried asking other communities, like coloring_help , but it seems everyone wants and no one knows how to do, so I thought I'd ask here.)
I tried searching through the tags "Coloring: Screen Capture" and "Resource: Screen Captures" but I couldn't find what I was looking for.  I use Photoshop CS3, Photoshop CS4, and Paint Shop Pro 7.0

RQ: Help with grainy pictures

(Last request, I promise!)
I know there was a tutorial on here, probably years back now, that helped you out with grainy, dingy, dark pictures -- trying to get the best out of them. I can't find it, and I'd really love to know how to do it.
