ContextMenuHandlers Missing From Registry! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, recently I have noticed that when I right click, the option to create a New Folder, new Zip, new Word document, new anything has completely disappeared. 

    I searched the internet for the issue and found a solution that involves going into the registry and manually fixing it. However, when I go to my registry http://HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ I notice that "ContextMenuHandlers" is entirely missing! As if it's been deleted or something. 

    So I cannot solve the issue because the folder within the registry I have to find just simply does not exist. 

    Is there a way this can be fixed? I cannot find anyone with the same problem anywhere on the internet.

    Please help!
