One of my boys got infected by some pretty nasty malware this week while I was away on a business trip to Denver. One of the negative side-effects of their removal was that Windows Explorer’s “New Folder” button stopped working. Fix below.
Linda’s solution involves resetting 16 registry keys under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/Folder back to their defaults. Go to the post linked above to find a link to Linda’s SkyDrive, where you can download the folderfix.zip that contains the folderfix.reg file.
