Need Help | Cant View Folders in Tile

I just downloaded a new software for changing folder background in Windows 7 and some how it crippled my Win Explorer settings by removing the TILE view which i mostly used.

The software i downloaded was from this site:
Change Folder Background In Windows 7 With Windows 7 Folder Background Changer

Also i can still view folders in Tile but only in Library Pane Window. In all other drives and folders there is no tile option. All other are available like (Extra large,large,medium,Detail,List,Content and especially EXTENDED TILE)

So any1 with suggestions on how to resolve the issue? Really looking forward to the replies

@Kishan This registry didn't restored the settings back Also kindly attach a revert back registry so i can get the configured backgrounds back. Desktop.ini settings are still preserved so i think it just the reg values that need to be changed Also any other suggestions how to change Extended Tiles view back to Tiles view? Regards!
