Since 10/20/2019, "VpShellRes.dll could not be found" pops up when I try to right click on titles of files in My Documents (mostly) and elsewhere.

Were you running Symantec End point protection and uninstalled it? Be very careful with registry editing.

I just now wrote a short paragraph trying to pinpoint exactly how the problem occurred, but before I could click Post, got distracted by "Click here for a discussion on popups."
Like a fool I clicked, got no discussion, and what I'd written was erased.
I'll try again when I'm wide awake.

Hey, the reply popped up again, out of nowhere:
A few weeks ago, about the time I renewed Norton antivirus, my Symantec Endpoint Protection "Disabled" itself. I couldn't Enable it again. After the popups became intolerable, someone suggested I use the Control Panel to uninstall the SEP, then reinstall it, to solve the problem. Uninstalling it was easy, but I'd assumed the Control Panel had a copy of the SEP to reinstall. It didn't. The popups keep on.
About the proposed regedit: I took a dry run through it, and this clumsy old coot (born before Pearl Harbor) doesn't want to risk it. I'll ask around.
