Are you creating this folder locally or remotely?

Cool, thats good. Try seeing if the location is the problem, try it in different locations (I.E. Where are you trying to create the folder, and can you try somewhere else and see if it works?)
Then, also try it in safe mode, see if that works. (Safe Mode doesn't support networking)
Come back with the findings.

And now I must rest. Good luck on your search. I wish teamviewer could be used in this instance. I'll be back in 8 hours

You can troubleshoot a problem using a Windows Clean Boot procedure, but it is rather long-winded:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

You could also try creating a new account to see if the problem still occurs.

If you can't replicate the issue when you boot into safe mode you may have a corrupted driver, a corropted update or a virus of some sort.

In that case, you can uninstall SP1 to check out your supposition.

If it is the cause then we'd need to find out why.

Hello Toby,

You might see if downloading and merging the Folder option in the tutorial below may be able to help. It will restore the default associations for folders including "New Folder".

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks your post and advice here.

I had removed service pack 1 and this fixed the issue.

Now I need to investigate why SP1 has done this.

I know there have been some issues that people have had with SP1 like blue screens etc etc.

It seems SP1 has been rather problematic for quite a few users.
