Missing "New" under File menu in Windows Explorer and in contextual menu

Hello-
    Recently, I noticed that the "New" option in the contextual menu that pops up when I right click in Windows Explorer (when viewing anything--the C: drive, My Documents, the dekstop, everywhere) which allows me to create a new Folder, Text Document, Word Document, etc. has disappeared. The option has also disappeared from the File menu in a Windows Explorer window. As a result, the only way for me to make a new Folder is through the Save As... dialog when saving a document in Word, Outlook, etc. This is quite a nuisance. Do any of you have any ideas on where to go to get the "New" menu back?

Thanks-
Joel

Sounds promising--thank you very much. I'm running Win98 with IE 6, which isn't listed as an affected combination in the KB article, but I'll have a look at this anway. I'll check it tonight and accept the answer if all goes well.

Thanks-
Joel
