Hello kaps,

You might see if using step 5 in the tutorial below to restore New -> Folder and it's default registry entries may help.

New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Great news.

It's not a .dll, but resetting the registry entries back to default for the folder and directory file types instead.

You can right click on the downloaded .reg file and click on Edit to see the default registry entries it changes back to in your registry.
