I was unable to create a new folder on my desktop. I Googled my issue and was directed to this website:

 

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/97de8a2a-12f2-4381-a409-a78f4ae551cf/cannot-create-new-folder-in-windows-7?forum=w7itprogeneral

 

I followed the Instructions and it was successful. Question: Did I allow a hacker access to my Registry?

 

 

 

1. Click Start, type Notepad in the Search bar and pres ENTER.

2. Copy the following commands and then paste them into the open Notepad window.
