Cannot copy file in Vista

If I right-click in a directory and choose New | Text Document, or Word
Document or ..., the file does not get created.

Nor can I copy a file within Vista.

So Vista's drop handler, if that is still the right term, is kaput.
Do not recall the last time I used right-click to create a file, so I
do not know when it got broken.

I believe that I copied files on 19/20 June 2009.

Any ideas on how to fix?

Re: Cannot copy file in Vista

It's working again!

1. As the Windows update had been run 24 June, I restored a backup from
23 June. Alas, problem continued.

2. I then restored a backup from 21 June. Alas, problem continued.

3. I know that I did a COPY/PASTE as recently as 19/20 June, so I then
restored a backup from 16 June. Problem fixed!!!!!

I then updated KIS, problem still fixed!!!!!!
I then ran Windows update, problem still fixed!!!!!!!

Evidence is that something broke between the 16 and 21 June bckups,
most likely on 20/21 June AFTER I did a COPY/PASTE on 19/20 June.

I am now backing up the system.

I guess that there could have been a virus that KIS did not detect.
Any other suggestions for cause of the problem?

When the backup is finished, I'll turn on Automatic updates in KIS.

No.

And it's best to copy all of them to your hard drive before doing
anything with them anyway.

Re: Viewing photos on a memory card
This would depend on your camera's settings. Most cameras store pictures in
a folder to avoid problems that can happen with too many files in the root
directory of the storage device. If it creates these folders, then you have
to open them to view the pictures.
