right click / new / context menu missing / win xp sp3

Recommended Posts

hello, i am using windows xp sp3.

from yesterday, when i right click, and choose new, only new folder and shorcut are my options, all others are missing, like office files, paint, and other programs.

what should i do?

i tried: to create here: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ a new folder with value {D969A300-E7FF-11d0-A93B-00A0C90F2719} ,

i tried using recreate new regedit,

i tried to .. restore my computer to how it was 2 days ago, and the problem persisted.

also i used some programs to select which option to see at right click/new - and all needed were enabled..

can you give us an idea of what has happened to get you to this point?


what programs have you ran?

did you run registry cleaner in CCleaner?


the programs you ran to select which options are seen in the Context Menu, were they run and created the problem or were they used to try and fix the problem?
