try this 1

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

Registry editor will be opened.

Navigate to this location.


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:



@="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""



OS is Windows 7 x64
Thanks very much Bro. I really was able to fix my trouble. You truly saved my day!
Thank you very much.
thank you so much dear............ :)
Worked! Thank you for the useful info. Does this register value get changed because of virus?
