    I've had some pretty odd folder related problems under XP (I'm asuming you're using XP too). It's pretty lame, I've had folders with only Visual Studio workspaces in them change to "Music" folders...

    Any answer will benefit me too ;)

    See how these go>

    How to set the folders and make them stick
    To make the folder settings stay, there are two methods,

    A) One is to delete the two registry entries (after backing them up).
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags]

    B) Another is to add the entry "BagMRU Size" and set it to a value greater than 400 that is the default
    Go to:-
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell
    and add a DWORD called
    BagMRU Size
    and give it a value of
    000003e8
    Then go to :-
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam
    make a DWORD called
    BagMRU Size
    and give it a value of
    000003e8
