Windows 7: Missing Registry entries

Missing Registry entries

Hello,
Upon Right clicking the Desktop the upcoming contex menu doesn't list the "NEW" option, neither able to create a new foder option in file menu.
As a solution I was advised to set a new value in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ but three entries are missing: Background, DefaultIcon and shell, only the shellex folder shows up. See attached files.
Any advice?
Thank you
barsim

Hello Barsim mate what you should have done before changing the registry is this Registry - Backup and Restore

Now you could try a system restore but I am not promising anything. System Restore

Create the three entries that are missing and then set the new value.
