Did Enthusiast's advice in this thread help? http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/65863/missing-folder-options-in-tools-menu/

If not, here's a couple of suggestions:
1) Look for Folder Options in your Control Panel
2) Open Windows Explorer and select the Tools menu item - there should be a "Folder Options" listed there
3) In Regedit, navigate to: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

Also try:

set the DWORD "NoFolderOptions" to 0 or just delete it (this entry is not present on my system - so it may be an entry that is added by some tweaking software).
