    If you want to remove it do this:

    Remove Shared Doc's From My Computer

    Start regedit & navigate to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\DelegateFolders
    Locate the key {59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}.
    Right click on it and select delete.
    Reboot !




    This is the full key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\DelegateFolders\{59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}

    Hipster, can you get it to point to something else? say a different folder that you use often, or something like that.

    Well the unscientific way would be to open the Shared Documents folder and create a new Shortcut to wherever you like and delete the two folders currently in the Shared Folder.
