Folder Options Tabs on the window missing :S

  Andy 999 21:59 24 Jul 2003

Hi everyone, I noticed a couple of days back that when i try to view hidden files etc i open folder options but there is only the file types and offline files bars at the top of the window there. I am using XP sp1 and all the updates and sfc doesnt seem to of fixed the problem. How can i get my tabs back so i can view my hidden files etc again?

now click on customise and choose the ones you want to see

It sounds like you are do not have administrator privelages on this PC?

However, if you do go to start>run and then type sfc /scan now (note the space between sfc and /)

Have your XP disc to hand

I have tried sfc /scannow from the command promt with the XP cd and the SP1 cd. None seem to have worked.Also, i do have administrator privelages so i cant understand why this has happened.

Any ideas on how to repair this?

thanks madboy again for your help
