Hi !

In an XP-Home, one user system, what shoul be the defautl values found
in the following registry entry:

HKU\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVer sion\Explorer\Shell
Folders ??


To make a long story short, there are entries pointing to a non
existing user's folder (eg: C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP\....) and I
want to get rid of this TEMP user and folder..

This is the only section of the registry where this folder is
referenced.

Thanks..

It's even more confusing ! You're the first one I see with ALL the
values pointing to same "root" folder
(C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\)

All of the others I looked at had some entries pointing to
"C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService" and others to "C:\Documents
And Settings\NetworkService", but not with a consistent pattern.

I also wonder what can be the consequences of a blank entry (as My
Music, My Pictures are in your case -- in mine, it also includes
Desktop, Favorites, PrintHood, NetHood, Pedrsonal, StartMenu and
Template)..
