Drag & Drop in Windows disabled - Malware infection - SOLVED

Specs: Windows XP
So, well this is not a question BUT a solution. I was lookiing for a soultion for some hours and found nothing! So I decided to share this to the public for quicker help ;)

This should be helpful on every Windowssystem starting at NT 4 up to the current 8.1 I guess ...

For me the following worked well:

Check if shell.dll shell32.dll ole32.dll are present is sytem32 folder

win+r cmd enter
cd to windows\system32 folder
regsvr32 shell32.dll
regsvr32 ole32.dll

seem that this was unregisterd by one of these malwares that my daughter caught on her computer: "MyPC Backup" , "Basis" , "Nationzoom" or maybe something completly different. She had about 70 infections, although there was a realtime viruscan on all the time. So do a Malwarescan as well beside your resident scanner.

We used Malwarebytes free edition and CCCleaner from Prirform as well as AdwareScanner ...

Hope that helps!

Regards from Germany
