Display Properties Tabs disappeared

Hello, I need help with my display properties.

I'm running windows XP with service pack two in a AMD Duron with 800Mhz, and 128MB of RAM.

Also, I'm sure I'm spyware/virus free.

Ok, the problem is that my computer doesn't show the tabs for my "Display Properties" (the window that you get when you Right-click you desktop and select "properties").

All the tabs are gone! And I need them back.

Thank you for your help, I would appreciate any help.

SleepyChoco, If all of the tabs are missing in Display Ptoperties go to the link below and scroll down to Line 285 (right column) and click on "Restore All Display Tabs" to download a reg file and save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.

128MB of RAM? I had a used computer for a time.

In reply to: Re: Display Properties Tabs disappeared

Had 128 MB, 100 MHZ (2) had to chop out programs to work. I have 256MB, 128MB & 128MB, 133 Mhz=512MB RAM. I use this to find what computer can hold:
Company is, Max for me is 798 MB, that means only (2)356MB
and they would go into my 128MB (2) slots. Darrell L.
