Cannot Create New File Folders/

    Question

  • My problem is tath I can no longer create empty folders either through the main menues or the right context menu.  This started to occur after having made changes to the registry to rename my User folder using a tip from TenForums and a registry find and replace utility.  I backed my registries up but want to see if there is a fix that would work and not make me have to go back through the registry editing process again and risk replicating whatever it is that I did to cause this issue.

    There is fix in the "non-technical" forum that worked for what appears to to be the same issue I have but I couldn't post over there and was told to post here.  Seems like a weird oversight on MS's part to not give the user the chance to name the user profile but instead to just generate the user profile name from the a truncation of the email address...

    Attached is a copy of my current HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory.
