Hello All1,

If you have a 64-bit Windows 7 installed, then be sure to also do the additional step for it to remove them from the "Save as" and "Browse" type dialog boxes. However, some 3rd party programs may use their own "Save as" and "Browse" dialog boxes that ignore this and still show all of them.
For example, this "Browse" dialog box has "Libraries" removed from it.

You're most welcome All1. I'll look into the username one some more to see if I may be able to find out what it may be, and post back if I do.
