Go to search and type wei.
It means
Windows Experience Index
It should come up.

Are you on administrator account or standard account? Is it possible that this feature is somehow blocked from your account?

Providing you are the owner and running under an Admin-privileges User Account:

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If this doesn't help, consider a Repair Install

Are you able to right click on desktop?Make sure a key named 'NoViewContextMenu' doesn't exist with value 1 at these locations-
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ExplorerHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
If they do, delete them or change their value to 0, reboot and try right clicking again.

Thanks for the help, none of these worked.

System scan gave no results

Searching WEI gives the (change time properties) so must be missing

and could not find that value within /policies/

I guess i'll try a repair install
