** Can't create anymore New Folders in Windows 7 **

Well this problem only began today after installing and uninstalling some
free Antivirus software that I was trying out for the first time. Before
that, I was about to install a new burning program and I decided to create
a manual restore point first, in case anything went wrong. After installing
Microsoft Security Essentials, I'm not too sure if that caused the problem
but that's when I noticed that I couldn't create anymore new folders when I
click the New Folder button in Explorer or when I right-click and select
New, there would be no New Folder option. I have a hunch that this could
most likely be some sort of registry
