    Cannot Create New Folder

    I can no longer create folders!
    This right-click conext menu option is gone from Explorer, and Explorer
    windows which have a "New Folder" button embedded (such as my browser's
    "download" dialogue) don't work either!

    I have turned User Account Control on and off (am "administrator" and only
    user)
    .... nothing works.

    Please help!

    Thanks,
    - Kris

    Re: Cannot Create New Folder

    Are all the right-click New items gone, or just the Folder option?

    All the right-click New items are still there (New: contact, txt documents
    etc) Only New Folder is gone! (and of course doesn't work through any other
    means)

    I've had to copy a blank folder over-and-over-and-over everytime I need new
    folders LOL!

    TY in advance
