Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
After infected by a virus, the folder options in tools is missing. what will i do to make it appear again?
Sounds like part of your XP operating system was damaged when you removed the virus. Most virus removal programs either quarantine (block off) or delete infected files. If something important gets infected, then things will stop working.
There is a fix, though. You will need your XP installation CD. Put it into your CD (or DVD) drive, and reboot. Allow the system to boot from the XP install disc. Once it loads the installer, it will ask if you wish to do a "new" installation, or repair the existing one. Obviously, you want to repair yours, so choose that, then just follow the prompts as it guides you through the process.
Once this is done, it should have replaced the essential files that were either quarantined or deleted, and things ought work as they did before.
PS - make sure you have thoroughly scanned your system for any further infections, preferably before repairing your XP setup.
