    Hello,
    1. If Folder Options is disabled but Registry Editor is still working in your system, then you can enable Folder Options by editing Windows Registry. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. it'll open Registry Editor, now go to following keys:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre nt Version\Policies\Explorer
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr ent Version\Policies\Explorer

    2.In right-side pane, check whether a DWORD value named NoFolderOptions exists or not? If it exists, delete it.

    3.If you are not familiar with editing the registry, then you can simply download following file, extract it and then run the .REG file:

    4.But sometimes Registry Editor is also disabled. Whenever you try to open regedit, Windows will show following error message:

    Registry Editor has been disabled by administrator.

    5.. If its not a trojan problem and someone has disabled it intentionally in your system, then you can enable it again by using any of following 2 methods:

    a. Type gpedit.msc in RUN dialog box and go to:

    User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System

    in right-side pane, set "Prevent access to Registry editing tools" to either Not Configured or Disabled.

    b. Just type following in RUN dialog box and press <ENTER>:

    REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pol icies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Now after enabling Registry Editor, you can re-enable Folder Options by following methods mentioned in 1st or 2nd steps.

    Thanks.
