    check this
    http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/t212338-missing-folder-options.html

    or if ur comfortable with the registry do this

    start >> run >> type "regedit"

    right click on explorer folder >> new >> DWord value and give it a name "NoFolderOptions" ... then double click on it and give the Value data a value of one and restart the system. do this preferably in windows safe mode

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoFolderOptions"=dword:0000000

    warning:back up the registry b4 making changes. incorrectly changing the registry can cause harm to ur system and may render it unbootable. exercise caution which making changes to the registry.
