As a test, download and merge the Folder option listed in the tutorial below to see if that may help allow you to create a New Folder afterwards. It restores the default associations for folders.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,

thanks

Did you restart the computer afterwards?

Is it only these two locations below that you cannot create new folders in?

If this is from within your C:\Users\(user-name)\My Music and C:\Users\(user-name)\My Documents folders, then also try using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore their default locations to see if that may help afterwards.

i give up!!

i thought this method was going to fix it...i just had a feeling..but still nothing.

i went to the regedit and did EVERYTHING i read. i was happy to because when i type in the shell comand it takes me to "my" documents and "my" music, i seem to be able to create a new folder in there..but when i hit start then go to music or documents..i still cant.

i am just lost and seriously am this close to just giving up.

and even tho my prob. still hasent been fixed i greatly appreciate all you guys trying your best 2 help me out.
thanks guys.

What do you mean "give up?" This does not compute. We have no solution for that.

If SFC has not helped, then your next step it to System Restore to before the problem arose, then consider a Repair Install

If your Music was in the Music user folder then it should appear when clicking on the Start folder. You'd only add other folders from your computer or the network to that library if you wanted them there.

Try typing some titles in the Start Search box to see if it can find your music or any other missing files/folders. If results appear then rightclick and choose Open File Location to see where they are now located.

For your Music library, you could use the tutorial below to include the two default folders below.

Library - Include a Folder

C:\Users\(user-name)\My Music

and

C:\Users\Public\Public Music

Hi,

This sounds like it could be a malware infection - what was the name of the program you were downloading? What antivirus software was installed at the time?

Perhaps we can help you get setup with some security software once your PC is back in a decent working order.

Golden
