In windows explorer I'm missing the option to create a new
folder in the file menu, I'm also unable to create a new
folder by right clicking on desktop. Where have they gone?

Out of curiosity do you have a nVidia graphics card and have you recently
updated its drivers?

This problem seems often to be being caused by installing updated nVidia
graphics drivers. If that's the case here and you don't want to use
system restore there is a registry file you can download from Aumha.org
which will should fix the problem. "Restore NEW Command. Win 9x" at

Thanks Mike, yes I recently installed a nvidia card. The
patch you suggested worked thanks. I'm not using the
latest nvidia driver as the updated drivers causes
problems in the game Links 2003, I'm using nvidia 53.04
driver instead. Cheers.

Thanks for the feedback and also confirming that you had recently
installed nVidia drivers. The version of the nVidia drivers appears to be
unrelated to this problem which seems instead to be a side effect of the
nVidia installer rather than the actual drivers installed.
