    Try the XP Security Console. It gives easy access to Group Policy settings for the Home Edition, but also works in Pro.

    forgotten_prince, You could also try this which will correct the problem.

    Go to the link below and scroll down to line 129 (left column) and double click on "Restore Folder Options Under Tools" to download reg file fix.

    Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.
