    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go HERE and follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Dear howard,

    My laptop was back to normal, no program shutdown or system hang and my internet connection running smoothly, thank to you and other TS Special Forces.I've already installed security program as per your advice to avoid problem in the future.One more thing I want to ask, is there any chance I can gain access the "Folder Options" again.Thank you.

    I`d still like you to post a fresh HJT log, then I can check to make sure your system is clean.

    If it is clean, then maybe doing a Windows repair as per this thread HERE, will fix your folder problem.

    Regards Howard :)
