Hi @Mikey

Check that whether your login account have access to write in C:/ drive.

Right click C: > Properties > Security tab > Advanced options

Check for the account name which you have logged in and set full control.

Where exactly are you trying to create a new folder? Is it somewhere in the C drive or on the desktop?
However, you may follow the steps below and let us know the result.

To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Click on Start.
2. In the start search box type CMD and press enter.
3. Type cd.. and press enter, repeat cd.. and press enter until you get c:
4. Now, type the following in the command prompt:mkdir folderName
Here, folderName will be the desired folder name
5. Check if the folder is created in C drive

Step 2
Access the link below and follow the steps suggested by Linda YanonMonday, May 24, 2010 8:38 AM and check if it helps you fix the issue.

Step 3
If the above steps fail perform a system restore on your computer and check if it helps you create a new folder

To restore the operating system to an earlier point in time, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type system restore in the Start Search box, and then click System Restore in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
2. In the System Restore dialog box, click Choose a different restore point, and then click on Next.
3. In the list of restore points, click a restore point that was created before you began to experience the issue, and then click on Next.
4. Click Finish.

The computer restarts, and the system files and settings are returned to the state that they were in at the time that the restore point was created.

Hope this helps. Let us know the results.
