What version of Windows?

by Mr.Wiz In reply to folder options

What version of Windows are you running? If running XP, then folder options should be on the Tools menu at the bottom.

i have the exact same problem

by romirgavino In reply to folder options

added to that whenever my windows starts, my "My Documents" folder opens twice! I acually suspect its a virus.. but ive tried 2 virus scannsers already and both say their's nothing on my PC (Mcaffe and Kaspersky) *sigh* the Folder Options button works fine on my other PC (non Service Pack 2) but on this one (Win Home XP sp2 installed) i cant make the thing run!

On Run, type regedit and enter. Are you able to enter into registry editor with this command?

could'nt run it

by romirgavino In reply to do a small test first.

tried to run it, i could'nt - it said that the registry editor was disabled by the administrator - which is weird since theres only one user on the PC... i really think this is still a side effect of the virus i got a couple of weeks ago, more help would be appreciated
