NO FOLDER OPTIONS ON XP Media Center Verison 2005

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
While trying to UNCORRUPT an installation of XP media center, I run into the problem that Control panel does not contain a FOLDER OPTIONS function, and Windows Explorer does not have a FOLDER OPTIONS on the TOOLS menu. Is there another way to turn on the ability to view hidden files?  System is installed on a Dell XPS 400 tower.  Also, does any factory disc for this OS contain a repair option?  The one I have does not.
