Default unable to create new folders

Lately when I right-click on the desktop screen or any other screen the menu that pops up no longer contains the option to crate a new folder:

(Please bear with me, I'm trying to explain the problem as best I can so that anyone can understand my problem-my computer knowledge is rather limited.)



1. Right-click any empty area on the desktop or in the window where you want to place the new folder.

popup window contains the following:

Active desktop>
---------------------------
Arrange icons>
Lineup icons
---------------------
Refresh
---------------------
Paste (faded)
Paste shortcut (faded)
Undo Delete
New
Properties


When "New" is clicked the following box appears:



Folder
Shortcut
---------------------
Text docment
Wordpad document
Bitmap Image
Wave sound

When "Folder" is clicked then the folder is created.



On my computer,when I do step 1. the popup box that I get only contains the following:

Nvidia Anolog Desplay( I have a Nvidia FX5200 video card)
--------------------------------------------------
Active desktop
-------------------------------
Arrange Icons
Lineup Icons
-------------------------------
Refresh
------------------------------
Paste
Paste Shortcut(faded)
Undue Move (faded)
------------------------------
Properties

There is no mention or "option" to create a Folder.


How do I get this feature back?
