"New Document" disabled on sharepoint site libraries

Good Afternoon

Today i just noticed we cannot crete new documents on on wharepoint site. Can upload / check in/out etc but cannot create new files. This happens accross all sharepoint site libraries no matter what the content.

Create a test site and had no issues with that that so Farm is ok just this one production site.

any ideas "when i hover over new document - message popup this feature is disabled.
thank you

As a fix i removed the default web application and recreated the default web application using the existing content database. This has resolved the issue. No idea why it occured.

I tried on the server with IE running under administrator and that did not work. also this would not be a solution for my users.

so, this is happening for all users? maybe there is a group policy that effects the creation of some activex controls...

1) Check User Policies for the Web App:
- Central Admin > Manage Web Applications > Highlight the web app > User Policy (on the Ribbon menu)
Make sure there is nothing funky there.

2) Also check the Site Collection Quotas and Locks
- Central Admin > Application Management > Configure Quotas and Locks > Change to the site collection
Verify the option for "Adding content prevented" isn't checked.

Yes, had checked option 2 already.

For option 1) i had compared all settings on production site to test that i know is working and everything looks the same. I also checked if any service were not activated on the server or on the site but comparison looks the same.

As a test i removed the Content database from production site and attached it to the test site.
