    is there a way to perminetly remove those annoying my music and my pictures folders from my documents. i really cant stand them and dont see why they need to re appear everytime i restart.

    is there a key in the registry i can delete like the one where u remove shared folders from my computer. or another way?

    thanx

    Open up regedit:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
    You can try deleting these keys (ONLY the pictures, video, music ones) and then delete them out of explorer and see if it works.

    ok thanx, i didnt delete the key i just deleted the value because i noticed there is a my video key with nothing in the value and there is no my video folder, so i think it should work.

    Right on then! Change the value, not delete the key. Now it's a perfect reg fix :)

    EDIT: When it says "My Pictures"="blah\blah\SomeDude\My Pictures", delete everything in the second set of quotes (e.g. starting at the first "blah") but leave the quotation marks there.
