real folders in start menu instead of libraries
This should disable libraries in the startmenu.
I got annoyed by the library function in windows7. I mean, it's handy and all, but I prefered the startmenu buttons to navigate to the real folder, in stead of the library of the folder. I wanted to view the folder as a child of its parent folder, not as a child of 'libraries'. So i made this registry tweaks to change the startmenubuttons behavior. When you you applied this and you click like 'documents' it will open the documents folder in stead of the documents library.
I did not know for sure if this tweak already existed, and I only tested it on widows7 starter...
P.S. after applying the registryfiles, you will need to log of and on (or restart explorer), to make it work.
V2 ready, I solved the double folder bug, if you have applied my first version regfiles, you must first use the fixes included and then apply the new tweak. If you dit not use my preferious version, you can use the new tweak right away...
So, if some people would like to test it for me...
UPDATE: (See tutorial for this)
