Thanks , it helps a lot. one more question
Do you get any error codes in event viewer? Also, if you try changing the My Documents location in Safe Mode do you have any success? (It's a long shot, but could work).Ian I have Build 7100, I tried to change location of mydocuments to the E: drive using your excellent directions, but when I am identifying the new location and I click on the E: drive, I immediately get a windows failure: WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING.
I'm using build 7100 also but it doesn't stuff up 4 meIan I have Build 7100, I tried to change location of mydocuments to the E: drive using your excellent directions, but when I am identifying the new location and I click on the E: drive, I immediately get a windows failure: WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING.
I tried the above, but while all the other folders under my user name are listed in the Registry - and while there is a My Documents folder under my user name the My Documents entry is missing from the Registry - why and how can I correct this?Are you logged on as an Administrator?
If this fails, you could try it manually using regedit at the following locations:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
