See how this goes. Backup first.

Start Registry Editor (Regedit).
Locate and then click the Default value under the following keys in the registry

if this problem occurs with drives:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell

If this problem occurs with folders:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

Click Modify on the Edit menu.
Type none in the Value data box, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
