Folder Options Diasbled, Task Manager Disabled, Registery Editor Disabled

This post will be about enabling the folder options, taskmanger and registry editor after they are disabled/not visible. These kind of things are usually consequence of viruses specially “Brontok” trojan which can be deleted by anti-virus. I am writing the solutions, but chances are if these things are caused by virus
really then after restart, these options(folder options, task manager) will again be disabled so use a good anti virus like NOD32 (preferable) or AVG and remove the virus. And then enable
the options as I am telling.

For restoring the folder options do the following.

1. Write regedit at run and open the registery editor.
2. Now locate the following key,

HKEY_CURRENT_ USER\Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentV ersion\Policies\ Explorer

or

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentV ersion\Policies\ Explorer

And in right-side pane, check whether a DWORD value named NoFolderOptions exists or not? If it exists then either change its value to 0 or delete it.

I hope this resolves your problem of Folder Options in tools menus.
Btw we can access it from Control Panel also.

-If registery editor is also disabled or locked do the following.

1. Write gpedit.msc at run and open the groups policy editor.
2. In the left side tree view locate the User Configuration node and expand it. Now locate the Administrative Templates and expand it also. Now locate System. Now don’t expand it and clicking on it look for the
options in the right view. Locate the item “Prevent access to registry editing tools”. Edit it’s properties and change it to disabled.

If task manager is disabled do the following.

1. Write gpedit.msc at run and open the groups policy editor.
2. In the left side tree view locate the User Configuration node and
expand it. Now locate the Administrative Templates and expand it also.
Now locate System and find Ctrl+Alt+Del Options in it. Left click it once and look for the options in the right side list view. Double Click the option Remove Task Manager and change it’s current setting to Disabled. If it’s already disabled you still have to change the setting to any other value and than change it to Disabled just to refresh it. Be sure to refresh the windows and task manager will be enabled.

I hope this much helps. But I will seriously recommend to scan and clean the system completely with some anti-virus.
