I'm with our fearless leader, cscgal...what? What problem? What option? What folder? I'm so confused!

*pets his computer* -- Thank you for not confusing me - I can always count on computers *ZAP* ACK! LUCY!!!

*post - any fix to ESD damaged PC's?*

Ok, I'm done being confused - but if you would, please let us know the problem in a bit more detail and the fix (to be sure it is a fix, not a work around - which would be ok, but not a full fix, and could cause a problem later)

This might be caused by a group policy. Try the following fix: http://www.myfixes.com/quickfixes/fixes/24

I just realized today that there was a mistake in the fix. Instead of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

the path was

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\

However now is corrected and I just tested the fix and works perfectly :)

Yepp!
I think I found solution for "Folder Option Missing". I tried my idea in my computer and some of my friends'.
You must go to "Control Panel" then "User Account" and then Create a new Administrator User.
If You log on with this new user, I hope you see "Folder Option" again.

In these circumstances the best thing to do is a system restore a week or even a month earlier then a full virus and spyware check.

Tampering with the registry is just a pain.

Hi

Thnx for the advise..

Bt I was so messed up, I formatted my comp and reinstalled windows.

Bt please let me know about the System Restore thing that you wanted me to use ??


Regards
Sam

A reformat was prolly the best option.

To restore go to:

Start> accessories > system tools > system restore.

You can roll your settings back without wiping your drive.

The Folder Option is missing both in the Control Panel and Tools Menu. What might had caused this problem? Is there any solution to this? Tnx in advanced Gurus!!

.iwant the solution as quick as possible.

i believe if you just logout and log in with another user and try to go to folder option at control panel
else ......

This happened to me too, right after a Windows and IE upgrade downloaded itself.

I found myself running in a guest account instead of my usual account after the install. Logging off the guest account restored access to the folders bar.

pleas give me solution

Hi all,
Here is the solution

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]
Value Name: NoFolderOptions
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = show options, 1 = hide options)

u hv make changes in ur registry

NJOY!!!
