New Text Document missing from context menu

I don't know what I did but the new text document is missing when I right click on the desktop. I've read all the relevant posts here in this forum and downloaded many .reg files but none of them works. The shellnew key exists and everything else looks good but the new text document option is just missing! Is there any other way I can fix it? Thanks!!!
