Hi, My name is Sam. My questions is when I try to go to Folder Options by click on the Organize button in any folder, and then select Folder and Search Options from the menu.

The Problem is this it is grayed out to the point where I can not click on it? Weird!, I just go a fresh new hard drive installed into my already one month old computer from microcenter, along with the hard drive a clean reinstall of Vista. I use NOD 32 for viruses and scan every week (knock on wood) I have not had any problems with a virus. Please help me figure this out.

I am going to try to insert a photo of my problem, if it does not show here

And you can't get to it in Start>Search>Folder Options I presume?

OK, so here is another Kelly's Korner XP .vbs fix. I just tested it on Vista and no damage was done, although I don't have the issue you have.

As the Geek says, you may want to back up your registry anyway.

And welcome Sam, nice use of captures to make your point.
