You must have Administrative privileges


Go to: https://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and go to tweak number 129.

Are you experiencing other system features you cannot use? Its possible your profile is corrupt. Create a new username using Admin and see if you can see Folder Options

You can try to revert to a better time using System Restore, to see if that helps aswell.

Any recovery software can not help you. Your corrupted profile mustn't be found.
