Hi,

try this 1

Click on Start ---> Run --->type regedt32 and click on OK.

Registry editor will be opened.

Navigate to this location.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory

now click on "Shell"

At the right side there will be a file "Default". It's value should be none.

If its not set to none, then double click on default and type none and click on OK.

Thanks! You are a legend :)
In my case I had to restore these too:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell]
@="none"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd]
@="@shell32.dll,-8506"
"Extended"=""
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd\command]
@="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\find]
"LegacyDisable"=""
"SuppressionPolicy"=dword:00000080

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\find\command]
@=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,\
