Missing tabs in the Display Properties dialog may be usually caused due to malware infestation, or due to incorrect changes made in the registry either manually or using a third-party tweak program.
I wrote a Vbscript to restore the missing display tabs quickly. The script does modify certain registry settings in your system, and your anti-virus package may warn you about it. You can safely allow this script to run, so that it can perform the required task for you.
Download showalldisplaytabs-xp.zip, unzip and run the enclosed Vbscript file. If you want to view the contents of the script before running it, simply open it using a plain text editor such as Notepad.
The Vbscript file removes the Policy keys that hide the Display Properties tabs, and registers certain system DLLs.
