I am having the issue, where, I have 2 folders called "My Documents". I recently edited my registry to make "Document" link in the Windows 7 start menu be a FOLDER link and not a LIBRARY link..

Here is the Registry Key information for the Documents key:

Key Name:          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{7b0db17d-9cd2-4a93-9733-46cc89022e7c}

Also, Navigating through computer to "C:\Users\Flasimbufasa\" Only shows one folder called "Documents"

However, whenever I navigate to user profile from "Desktop\Flasimbufasa" I get 2 Document folders.

Any help?

If you change it back to the way it was originally, does it work? – nhinkle Mar 3 '11 at 5:47
Yes, there is only one folder when I revert back to using [or lack of] the libraries. – Flasimbufasa Mar 3 '11 at 14:34
