No "New" option on right mouse click!

    OK, this one has me stumped. My son's right-mouse-click menu is missing the
    "New" option! Everything else is there ("Arrange Icons," "Properties,"
    "Refresh," etc.).

    The "New" option is missing everywhere... on the desktop, and in all
    folders. So, I can't create a new folder, text file, etc.

    His computer has Windows Me and everything else works fine. I checked for
    viruses, trojans, hijackers, etc... and everything comes up clean. This is
    freaking me out. Any help would be appreciated.

    To fix the missing new option, copy the below and paste it in a text file.
    Rename the file to fixnew.reg and then double click on it.
    It will correct the registry and should restore the new function.
