This problem is most commonly caused by a virus called "Brontok". Brontok virus will make some changes to the system restrictions in order to hide itself from easy detection and also from easy cleaning. Here's a free tool called Remove Restrictions Tool (RRT) which is able to re-enables all what the virus had previously disabled, and gives you back the control over your own computer.folder options - ffc6f26.png

  1. Click Start, and then select Run, and type REGEDIT on the pop- up. Click OK.
  2. In the Registry Editor, select the registry key you need to back up.
  3. From the Registry menu, select Export Registry File option.
  4. From the Save In list, click the folder where you want to save the backup.
  5. In the File Name box, type a name for your backup file, such as "Options" or "Backup."
  6. In the Export Range box, be sure to select "Selected branch" option.
  7. Click Save. The file is saved with a .reg extension.

Once finishing backing up the registry files, you are allowed to edit the registry manually:
  1. Click Start, and then go to Run.
  2. Type "regedit" onto the dialog box, and then press Enterto enable Registry Editor.
  3. Find out HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder and double click to open it. Then click "Software" folder, go to "Microsoft" folder, select "Windows" folder, click"Currentversion" Folder.
  4. Click "Run" folder ==> Click on the UIMain.exe file.

Enable the Registry Editor, Task Manager and Folder Options Disabled by Viru


Virus attack is common these days and we often come across the problems like Disabled Folder Options or like Task Manager and Regedit disabled by Administrator. These problems are nothing but virus activities. The virus has infected our system and stopping us from accessing these options.
23f407e.jpg
Pressing keys Ctrl+Alt+Del opens up a dialog saying that “Task Manager has been disabled by your Administrator” whereas you are the Administrator yourself. It becomes very annoying when you think that you can fix this problem by going into the Registry Editor but it doesn’t show up. Even the Folder Options gets disabled.
This problem is generally caused by a virus named “Brontok” but don’t worry just use RRT (Remove Restrictions Tool) that can easily solve this problem. RRT is free and can successfully enable:
1. Folder Options
2. Regedit (Registry Editor)
3. Task Manager
4. Show Hidden Files option
The tool will come more useful if you use it in Safe Mode.

Folder option is disabled


hi friend chk this

You are right that this is because of a virus attack. The virus has changed somethign in the registry. Follow the below methods:
Method 1:Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
Go to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.
Method 2:1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. Enjoy!
