Your registry contains the phrase Empty Folder and Subfolders.

That is why the first reg file that I uploaded failed for you.

Either you manually changed the phrase via regedit or you downloaded a different reg file than the one that you have linked to.

You can try the reg file that I've attached to this post.

That reg file contains this text:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKLM\Directory\shell\Empty Folder and Subfolders]
We have to know the exact text on the key to be deleted.
