I found a fix for the problem, I had the same problem when I updated
wordpress to 3.5 to fix it you just need to delete your widget logic
visual, and I will come back to normal

This is not a fix. Tjis options is always available. People are looking for
a fix to keep using the same functionality as in 3.4.

Buff, my problem is deeper, I’ve Widget Logic Visual to organise the
widgets, and this is causing the problem with WP 3.5 cause if I activate de
plugin I can’t acces to Screen Options…
