    after being infected with a "Generic" worm and cleaning my pc I noticed that my windows context menu are missing some of its submenus..
    - The desktop con. menu missing the Arrange and New submenus.
    - The partition con. menu missing the New submenu.
    How can I fix this without having to reinstall windows? o_O :'(

    Hi Minacross,

    Page search context over on Kelly's Korner "tweak's" page. I'm not sure which you'll need, or how far you'll get.

    Check context again this page while you're there - http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_c.htm

    Perhap's Ramesh - http://windowsxp.mvps.org/openwithsub.htm


    In review, I'm no longer confident my previous suggestion's were appropriate.
    Perhap's a better route surfaces knowing this *worm's* name?

    I doubt file association's, SFC my other consideration.

    Thinking a "detached" explorer or shell dll's to blame, Dial-A-Fix came to mind.
    *Check WARNINGS should you decide to give'er a spin.

    If your pc reacts other than expected it is most likely no longer trustworthy. That means you have the choice:
    To use a system restore point before the infection
    To restore from an image, that you hopefully have made.
    To make a fresh installation and learn, that the first duty in computing is backing up.
