For some reason I can no longer create a new folder in Vista Home Premium. I am convinced now it is some registry problem that I cannot figure out. When I am in my documents folder and right click, then select new I have a list of available files types I can create (text file, picture, word doc, power point file) everything including creat a shortcut however create a folder is not there. Additionally on the desktop same problem.

I have searched around on the net and it seems that either I am missing some registry key(s) or a dll is not registered. Not positive but it seems that way. Any ideas how I can get the create new folder option back?
