try to make a new folder?

whenever i right click on my desktop to make a new folder the box
freezes. the computer still runs fine though, just a big gray box is on
top of all the windows. the only way i found to get rid of it is to log
off, the back on. any advice?

It sounds like something has damaged your right-click menu. You might want
to try this fix from MVP Ronnie Vernon.

*****
Copy the text between the dashed lines (not the dashed lines) and paste them
into Notepad. Save the file as New.reg and place it on the Desktop.
Double-click the file and answer the prompts to Merge the file to the
registry.

This should restore that right click menu option.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\Con textMenuHandlers]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\Con textMenuHandlers\New]
