  1. cool site you have here. you have actually helped me on something i have been trying to figure out for a while. I am no computer wiz so i will check back periodically for help. thanks!

  2. Sheryza, I will be glad to help you in any IT related matter. You can ask me through email or from this site. And, *ahem ahem* this offer is for each and every of my visitor. I haven’t announced this service officially on the blog but will be announcing soon.

  3. I recently had a virus attack, and according to McAfee it was a Trojan Virus.
    I am not able to see the Folder Options in Windows Explorer, I tried using the above method to get them back but unfortunately it didn’t work.
    When I type in gpedit.msc I get “file not found message” is there any other way to get them back?

  4. Hmm .. which version of windows are you using?

  5. You can use the full path to the file if you are using Windows XP or 2000. Go to C:\Windows\System32\gpedit.msc where C: is your system drive.

  6. I am using Windows XP Home Edition

  7. I was looking at some other forums and according to them gpedit.msc is not available in XP Home. It suggests using regedit instead, but don’t know how to make the settings from there.

  8. Ok .. that seems simple then .. Just go to Start –> Run –> regedit. The registry editor will open. Go to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
    \CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer

    In the right hand pane, see if there is a value called NoFolderOptions

    If yes then change it’s value to 0.

    1 means hide options and 0 means show options.

  9. I don’t see a value “NoFolderOptions” in the right hand pane. All I see there is “(Default)” with no data value.

  10. If you don’t see any NoFolderOptions then you should create a DWORD named NoFolderOptions and put 0 as it’s value. That means you’re forcing the explorer to show folder options.

  11. No Luck!!! Tried the above. It is still not showing the options.

  12. Did you restart the explorer after applying the tweak?

  13. It Worked!! After restarting the computer. Thanks a lot.
    Appreciate your help.

  14. I’m glad that you solved your problem .. just stay in touch and keep providing feedbacks.

  15. My machine became infected with Brontak and although I had Sophos installed it still managed to do quite a bit of damage – thanks to you, I have my View Folder option back (I ALWAYS forget how to load the Group Policy Editor!) so many thanks to you. 😀

    • hi there… i cant access regedit in run, even on c prompt!. there is no folder option in my pc, and i cant use CTRL ALT DEl. hope u can fix my problem.. big thanks!

  16. wat a great blog you hav here! you have finaly helped me figure out something I have been fighting with for a long tym now! keep it up!

  17. after I was attacked by a virus when ever I start my PC windwos explorer opens up automaticaly! how do I stop this?

  18. You should your startup items through msconfig to see if explorer.exe is loading in startup.. To open msconfig, go to Run –> msconfig –> startup. Make sure that no explorer is loading at your system startup.

  19. Christopher Woods and stvmule, glad to have you here .. just keep visiting and drop me a line or two if you have any suggestions about the blog.

  20. Thanks a Lot for this Nice Solution..

  21. wow……..
    Its really good to know faster resolution to the problem whatever faced by user.

  22. sorry to say this, but still i am not able to solve it

  23. Thanks jatt and Makarand, I will need some constructive feedback from you people to make this blog more effective in solving your problems.

    Hey UMA Ka, can you explain your situation? What happened to you and what did you do .. so that I may be able to help you more..

  24. Thanks a lot Sanix … i actually countered the same “folder option virus” ,i go thru the steps u post earlier ,it works fine and it is solved … thanks again bro … peace ^^

  25. Even I had the same problem of Folder options missing,…
    when I try to fix the problem as u have mentioned above…
    that is opening gpedit.msc my computer is getting restarted…. I am going mad.. even when I try to open the regedit.exe the same thing occurs…. Please help me out…..

  26. Thank you very much – your solution (gpedit.msc) just saved me hours of work

  27. Cheers Raj and NoRa, I’m so excited it helped you.
    Bharath, your system is probably still infected with a virus. Please use any of the online virus scanner to scan all you system. Here is some information about some of the free online virus scanners.

  29. i was in search of this article(Folder Option disapear) for the long time.one of mine friend has send me this.
    it was really nice to see this.

    thanx alot

  30. thanks, it really worked very well.

  31. tat’s it! the site i was looking at!

  32. I have a peculiar problem…I am using xpsp2 and in windows explorer, folder options is visible in the tools menu. but when i click on “show hidden files and folders” in the folder options, nothing happens. none of the hidden files and folders are displayed and when i go back to folder options i see that it has been set to the “do not show hidden files” option again. I want to know how to see hidden files in the system

  33. INTERNET DIAL UP CONNECTION NOT CREAT A CONNECTION

  34. i got problem with it….its because of this virus “Trixcu.A”

    It disables the following functions:
    – Find of the Start menu.
    – Folder options of the Start menu.
    – the Task Manager.
    – the Windows Registry Editor.
    – the CMD shell.
    # It hides the extensions of the files, and the files and subfolders that have the attribute hidden, in order to go unnoticed.
    # It turns the computer off once it has carried out all the changes in the system, by running the following command:
    shutdown.exe -s -f -t 1

  35. Thanx a lot

  36. Hi guys, have been surfing several hours about the tweaks on folder options, you’re among the few sites to actually hold people’s hands step by step. Keep trucking!

  37. I was really worried about solving the prob of folder options getting vanished. Thanks man u hav the answer!!!

  38. i got the nofolderoption but i set to 0 should i restart pc after i do that??

  39. Wow…u guys are lifesavers…Thanks for tips & tools…

    As for Drak..I too had the same problems with the virus/worm “Trixcu.A” but i manages to detected it early and use Autoruns and process explorer to disable/kill the virus at the startup process…after that I use Ravmon virus killer patch to restore my setting to the original. Or u can try manual editing (refer to http://edubase.com.my/v1/trixcu.a-worm.html).

    Good luck!

  87. RE Folder Options not displayed in Windows Explorer.

    I have the problem described in earlier , May of this year, postings. gpedit is not available on my Win XP Home.

    Looking for :
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
    \CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer as described by Sania May 29,

    Under “policies” There are “NonEnum”, “Rating”, and ‘System”. Not “Explorer”. This is true of my other desktop and my laptop. Also none of them have gpedit.

    Nevertheless, the one desktop has Folder Options displayed in a window to the left which is quite convenient..

    Any help will be appreciated as I like that Folder Option function for quickly burning CDs

    Thanx

  167. hey i happened to run into this blog and it looks like you know what youre talking about so i thought id give it a shot lol, well i unfortunately contracted the spyware guard 2008 and 2009 on my xp and now when i try and install norton 2009 it gives me error “registry editing has been disabled by youre administrator” and i cannot seem to find out how to enable it, i am logged in as the admin on my pc. any insights??? thnx

  168. i have my folder options present in my tools option. But when i want to hide or unhide the files (by using show hidden files and folders-radio button), it doesn’t work. i have been trying it hard from last 7 months. i m using Windows xp sp-2

  169. I have two mysterious .exe files called: lsass.exe and kyamdorp.exe on my C: drive and everytime i try deleting it the usual way it says Cannot delete kyamdorp/lsass: Access is denied and i cant even use the registry and even more so when i used the EnableRegTool it STILL says regedit is denied by my administrator. SO WHAT THE HECK DO I DO. I CANT TACKLKE THIS PROBLEM… There MUST be a new solutionnnnnnn PLEASE… i got so much stuff from school on this computer but any method i tried of yours it still denies me access to the registry files. The two files kyamdorp and lsass.exe keep reappearing over and over and over everytime i transfer them to another folder or transfer them to the desktop and even tried renaming them and deleting them after. But they just keep coming back time and time agian. What am i to do? Formatting is definently not on my mind right now. It would be a very bad time.

  170. I recently had my computer repaired and when I got it back, there were certain programmes/applications missing such as voice recognition, search and folder options. Is there a way I can download folder options like I have for search? I need it so that I can view my hidden folders….

  171. hey guys my computer just recovered from a crash, i’m fairly sure it was a trojan named djiqa.exe and lsass.exe my folder option won’t appear, i can’t use installed programs as it says “windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access this item.”
    i’ve tried gpedit.msc and it says “file not found message” everytime i try regedit it gives me “windows cannot access the specified….” it’s quite frustrating, i can’t see a solution.

    Very very annoying!
    Any help? Please?

  199. Hi guys, not sure if anyone can help…(I’m using Windows XP, SP3)
    I want to re-assign an icon to my spare local disc – my main local disc (F) has one but the ‘G’ local disc doesn’t have one… for some reason it was previously using the netgear wireless adapter icon after I installed netgear wifi software. I found and deleted the icon so now my local drive doesn’t have an icon. I can still explore the disc, no problem. I’ve tried to go to folder options > file types… I highlight the drive icon then advanced. Next I can see ‘edit file type’ window. There is an ‘edit’ button but it’s greyed out. There’s a ‘change icon’ button – I can change icon but it does nothing to g local disc icon. There’s also an ‘actions’ box with the command ‘find’ …
    That’s far s I’ve been able to go on this.. any help appreciated.
