I did something silly and accidentally moved my my special folders (My Documents, My Music etc.) to the Desktop. Once I noticed my mistake I quickly moved them back. But now my System acts erratically.
It continuously creates new empty folders on my Desktop. And I have now two folders named "My Pictures" in my home directory. One of which is magically linked to the one in Desktop while on the command line one one is actually visible.
If I delete the superfluous folders on Desktop then the explorer crashes. It is all a big mess.
Of course I checked
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\User Shell Folders and it looks all ok there.
So here the question: As anybody got any informations on how Windows 7 handles the special folders which might help be clean up the mess?
I am well versed in using both the command line or the registry editor.
