Unable to create new folders on desktop

This is the message I get when I try to create a new folder on desktop.

I can create new folders in other folders and cut and paste them to desktop. It would be nice to be able to make them on desktop once again. any help would be appreciated

same error when I try to create a shortcut.

It started about four months ago

I believe it started when i used some program to fix reg errors but i am not sure which program it was
I dont what program it was I didn't know to back up and I dont remeber the prog asking. I now have back up s from everything since late august.
This is the value that was present rundll32.exe appwiz.cpl,NewLinkHere %1

I copy and pasted this value RunDLL32 AppWiz.Cpl,NewLinkHere %2 and it did the same thing.

So, I changed back to the original value.

I can't restart yet , but as soon as I can I will let you know. Thank you

Not many. My Desktop is pretty clean.
I found this
it says it sounds like a corrupt user profile. I created a new user profile and I can create folders on desktop.

there's a link on How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile.;en-us;811151

sounds like too much work to transfer all of my files. I would rather find what is corrupted (even if it takes a little time ) and fix it. I want to learn to fix any problems with my OS, I guess this is a start . Is there a way I can find and overwrite or correct the values in the reg ?

Any and All help is Greatly Appreciated... Thank You :)
