    Or try this:
    Full explanation in MS Knowledge Base Article Q321186

    1.. Start Registry Editor
    2.. Highlight the Default value under the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
    3.. Click Modify on the Edit menu.
    4.. Type 'none' (without quotes) in the value data box, and then click OK .
    5.. Quit Registry Editor.

    If you're not comfortable editing the registry, Doug Knox has a script with the fix. Download it at:
