    Not able to create New Folder in windows 7

    I don't know whether this problem is a minor or major one but it is not allowing me to create a new folder in my windows 7 computer. Everything was working fine till last week. The problem started occuring after the installation and uninstallation of few free antivirus softwares. Now i am using Microsoft Security Essential. What should i do to fix this problem?

    Re: Not able to create New Folder in windows 7

    If you are not able to create any folder through Graphical User Interface then try to do the same through command prompt.To do the same,Press "Windows key+R" and type "cmd" in the textbox.Once done,hit the enter button on your keyboard.You will see a black screen window which represents the command prompt window.type "cd.." and press enter button.Repeat the same,until you reach to the root directory.Then,use "mkdir folderName" command for creating the directory.Here replace the folderName with the name of your folder.Once done,close the command prompt window and check in the directory where you have created the folder.It should appear there.If yoyu are still facing any issue then open Notepad and paste the following data in it:

    Now save this file as "NewFolder.reg" on desktop.Once done, Go to the Desktop and double click on the same file.You will see a message "Are you sure you want to add the information in fix.reg to the registry?". Choose the "Yes" option.That's it. Please note that Administrator rights are required for this.
