My dad was given a computer by one of his friends so he could do taxes at home instead of at work. (he's an accountant for work/family/friends) Trouble is they did something to it so that when you view the folder options the only tab you can see is file types. My dad has this nasty habit of picking up viruses and such from the net. Because of not being able to set folder settings I cant view hidden files or file extensions to troubleshoot his system. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Go start -> run and type: regsvr32 /i browseui.dll do the same for regsvr32 /i shell32.dll.
Reboot your computer. Are they back?

I guess that I would have qualms about overriding the admin restrictions placed on a work computer...by the site Admin.

Especially so since you indicate that the restrictions are justly deserved.
