Whenever I have Windows Explorer open, if I click File and then New, actually, I don't even have to click new, even mousing over it I get the dreaded illegal operation message, explorer shuts down and I have to restore my original desktop. My PC has always done this, but I have found ways around it, for instance, if I want to create a new folder, I just copy another one, paste it where I want, empty and rename, but it's irritating and I want to fix it, anyone have any suggestions?
I run Windows 98 SE.

Well I'm sure it is the answer to my problems, however, since I have lived with it for this long I think I will continue to rather than start messing in my registry, i can barely force myself to type regedit :D
Thanks for trying to help though

Well that is your choice but if you change your mind we can help guide you through the process since it is relatively simple.
