I'm working on a computer that has its display properties tabs (all of them) missing. When you open it up it only is in "Themes" mode, but there is no tab at the top describing it. This is with an Administrator account, and any other account that has been created, or previously logged in with. This is with Windows XP sp1.
There is also a "Problem" with any video driver that has been loaded in. I have gone through three different video cards, and they all have the "Yellow Exclamation" next to it. I have downloaded all of the latest drivers for each card and the "problem" still comes up.
Both Adaware, and spyware blaster have not found anything.
Norton Antivirus has not detected anything either.
A System Restore from 2 weeks ago does nothing.
I have already tried looking in the group polices. (gpedit.msc) All are not enabled
I have looked in the registry file HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies and there is nothing in there at all.
I have run the display all tabs regedit from
Strangely enough, if you boot into Safe Mode. The Tabs return and are functional.
Does anyone have any other ideas on how to restore the tabs for users?
