    Ok so I have a Win 7 installation where the main account is ok but every existing account and even new accounts have this limitation:

    The context menu is messed up, when you right click, you cannot create a new folder etc. it is greyed out.

    You cannot pin anything to to the taskbar. The option is there but clicking it, does nothing.

    I tried creating new accounts as I figured the existing accounts were corrupted but the same problems happens. This occurs regardless of whether the account is an administrator or standard user.

    Aside from those two issues, the profiles seem to behave normally.

    Also, I don't think the existing accounts were used beforehand as they were set up due to file sharing as they were set up to share with other users on different PCs. Therefore, not sure how long this problem has existed as I just noticed.

    Any troubleshooting ideas are appreciated!
