    See how you go with this>

    open regedit and find the key
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08 -00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder.

    Select this, on the right there's a binary value called Attributes. Rightclick it, 'modify'.

    Instead of 40 01 00 20 it should read 50 01 00 20 to have a 'rename' option. In XP, you'll also need to edit the dword string called "CallForAttributes" there. Set it to 0x00000000 (0)

    Simple way in XP (same as Hipster Doofus, but less typing):

    Copy and paste this into a .txt file...
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
    "Attributes"=hex:50,01,00,20
    "CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000

    --------------------------------------------------------
    (don't copy dashed lines, just whats between)

    Rename the .txt file to .reg - double click the file, add the info to your registry. Easy as pie.

    This is a dashed line ------------------------------

    this is information BETWEEN dashed lines

    ------------------------------------------------------

    this is the stuff you want to copy and paste. Do not copy and paste the dased line above and below the text.
