I'm running Win 7 64-bit, and just installed SP1 RTM. I had no prior version of SP1 installed, but I did have all the recommended Windows updates.
The problem is that as soon as Installed SP1, Windows 7 shows my "special" folders (Documents, Videos, Pictures, etc.) with the dreaded "My" prefix. I think I had done something to my system previously that made these display in Explorer without the "My", but I don't remember what. (I'm a very experienced computer user and programmer, but I failed to take notes on all changes when I was configuring and de-bloatwaring this new system about 2 months ago.)
Trying to rename the folders in Explorer fails; it says there's already a folder with that name. If I open a CMD window, dir shows me that the directories do indeed exist without the "My" prefix, even though Explorer insists on decorating the names.
How do I get Windows to stop being so "helpful"? This is driving me crazy. I've Googled this every way I can think of, done searches in regedit, etc., but I haven't stumbled across the solution.
