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.
