Hello,
When I right click (on my desktop or within a folder) and select "New" it displays the text (Empty).  I used to have the option to create a new folder, etc...

It was working yesterday but now the option is gone.

My computer did run a virus scan and Regcure ran a scan, in case that might be related.
Thanks.

I followed all of the instructions and did a reboot. and still no opton.
When I am on the desktop and right click I see the new option but when I select it the only thing it displays (is the actual non selectable text) "(Empty)"
