The only action the troubleshooter did was to ask to install a printer which I no longer own. I did reinstall the software for that printer.

Still unable to read or record to CD/DVD Drives

Still unable to make new folder

Try running sfc /scannow in a cmd prompt, this will find missing or corrupted system files and repair/replace them.

Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7
