The folder option in the toolbar can be made to be dissappear by fingering in the registry-editor of your computer.
This might be done by a virus.

Try Restoring your computer to an older restore point.

You may do this by
Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore> Next........

If this does not solve the problem, format your drive with operating system.

The blinking line in the address bar runs across the address bar causing my page to scroll all the way down and when i try to scroll back up the page bounces


Is this adress bar the internet search ?
This might be a mouse related problem

Make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected.
You might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers.

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x
Right click you will need to update the driver.

Click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall

Make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected in xp

I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

In XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

For the double or single click options to open folders this will be in the folder options follow previous to get to control panel items

Click start control panel navigate folder options tick in the double click to open circle

hope this helps

My seagate hard attacked by viruses that make the file shortcut. unfortunately all my files are hidden and I ca't get them back.


Are you able to scan the drive with an antivirus program? If you are able to actually go into the drive then on your toolbar go to Tools>Folder Options, then go to the View tab. Under the Hidden Files and Folders heading make sure it is set to Show hidden files and folders. If this is already set and you still can't see your files then it is a direct attack by the virus. Do you have an anti virus program, if so set it to do a deep scan of your whole computer including the seriously infected drive? If not there are quite a few good free anti virus programs on the web for download. Read my tip here on the best free anti virus programs: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6790239-virus_infection_best_free_anti_virus

How can I restore my previous settings, from damage done from Viruses?


Hi,
Computer virus especially the ones that comes from all over the world usually cause a lot of havoc on your Windows system. It disables nearly every built-in utilities such as regedit, cmd, folder options, msconfig, etc in Windows that can be used to possibly remove the virus. We can remove the virus using rescue disks but after successfully remove the virus from Windows, you still end up with registry editor, command prompt, task manager, system configuration utility and folder options disabled. Antivirus software can clean and remove virus
but they still haven't came up with one click solution to fix or restore the damages on Windows operating system
done by virus.

Good news is there are a lot of tools that can restore all these utilities that has been disabled by virus. One of my favorite is Remove Restriction Toool (RRT). RRT is able to easily re-enable back all the disabled Windows
functions that is caused by virus. Well, the virus creators is not satisfied with the mess they create on Windows computer, so they went ahead and create a new variant of a virus that will totally mess up your folder options advanced settings.

There was a case posted in forum which the "Hide extensions for known file types" option is missing from Folder Options advanced settings in View tab. You can get there by going to Control Panel > Folder Options > View tab.
hide-extensions-missing.png And here is another case where the whole advanced settings options is totally corrupted. You will find options such as Gue pikir2x lo itu, Adik lo banyak, Babe lo galak, Gak punya mobil, gue ada pacar baru, Gue kangen berat, Gue masih cinta lo, Gue pandang2x lo jelek, Hidup bersama lo:, Bakalan senang, Balakan susah, Biasa aza and etc... If I am not wrong, these are Indonesia language as they are very similar with Bahasa Melayu (Malaysian language).
gue-pikir2x-lo-itu.png
It was hilarious when the first time I saw this but I also pity the person who got infected by the virus that causes this damage.
I didn't know how to fix this because I have no experience with this problem. I thought the folder options advanced settings are hardcoded to Windows, but using SFC wouldn't fix this problem. The only solution I can think of is to do a repair and hopefully it'd reset whatever the virus has modified.
Now I found an easy way to fix the folder options advanced settings without wasting an hour on repairing Windows. Everything that is displayed in folder options advanced settings can be found in registry and not hardcoded to Windows. The location is at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder
I can confirm this because I've tried deleting the whole Folder key and the Folder Options advanced settings went blank! When I restore back the Folder key which I backed up earlier, everything was restored back. It is not easy (unless you want to be a real geek and memorize every shell32.dll codes) to manually fix the contents in folder options advanced settings because the "Text" key uses shell32.dll with some numbers.
What you can do is simply run the registry fix that I've exported from a "clean" and newly installed Windows XP and Vista. The registry key will automatically delete everything in Folder key and then restore back the default folder options advanced settings. I've also created an EXE version of the reg fix file using Reg2EXE because you could encounter problems in importing a reg file if your registry editor is disabled. I also have carry this fix around with me in my USB flash drive
.

I couldn't view the hidden files when i apply show hidden files in my folder options in tools menu in menu bar.


Folder Options is removed from Tools in Windows by a virus. The virus is called W32.Rontokbro@mm OR W32/Rontokbro.gen@MM

The removal of this virus is slightly difficult. Antivirus can't remove it automatically. However detailed procedure to remove it is available at

http://coolexp.blogspot.com/2008/01/fold...

About this Virus/Worm:
What it does is creating new files which looked like a folder but its actually a .exe file. Unless you’ve enabled the view extensions in the folder options or else you won’t see the .exe extension of the file. The file is approximately 43.7Kb and normally people will click to open it because it looked like a folder. So after you’ve open it, the virus will run each time during startup and keep on spreading and spreading… into the harddrives.

More troubles coming up. Normally when you click “Tools” in explorer, there’s a “folder options” underneath it. Once the pc is infected with the virus, the Folder Options will be missing, which disabled you to change the options to view the extension of the files. So when you see a new folder appeared from nowhere and you clicked to open it out of curiousity, the virus spread more again. Moreover, the virus disabled the registry edit where you will see this message “Registry edit is disabled by the administrator” everytime you try to edit the registry.

So how to clean the virus then? I found some solution from the following link and have successfully cleaned it from my system.

http://coolexp.blogspot.com/2008/01/fold...

It will help you to get rid of this virus named W32.Rontokbro@mm aka brontok.a and to get back your hidden files. Source(s): http://coolexp.blogspot.com/2008/01/fold...

P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

Memory card problems
