    but still the problem is not solved.
    Did you run the .reg file while signed in to the built-in admin account?

    Are you having any other issues with your Windows 8 installation?

    I'll create something today that should work a bit better than these two, and will post back later with it.

    To bad you can only scan a folder, and it's in the command prompt.
    That's great news!
    I'll be looking forward to this.

    Thanks

    Ok. Looks like we have no option left but to dive into the registry unless you just really want to reinstall Windows 8 again.

    If you are not comfortable doing this, then please let me know. I would recommend that you create a restore point before proceeding just to be safe.



    1. Open regedit.

    2. Navigate to the key below in the left pane of Registry Editor.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell

    3. Right click on shell, and click on Export. Save the .reg file to your desktop, then upload it here for me to take a look at.

    4. Right click on shell, and click on Permissions.

    5. Click on the Administrators group listed at the top, and look at the bottom permissions to see if it has Full Control checked under Allow like below. Post back with a screenshot of this.

    6. Close the "Permissions for shell" dialog, and Registry Editor.
