Windows 7: Library not renaming.

Library not renaming.

Hey guys, I'm current;y facing an issue with Windows7 that may not be very major but it is bugging me.

As you guys know, Windows 7 now incorporate Librarys as a way of sorting ur stufff instead of designated Folders. Well I always Renamed my libraries (from Beta to RC to now Win 7 Pro) with no probs at all.

Tll just now. I discovered all my libraries have "fixed" them selves to the default naming (music, Videos, Documents...you get the pic ). Any further changes to the library name does not work at all. However if i were to change the library name to anything other than the desired library name, it would change without a hitch. just what is going on here? ._.???


It jut recovered from another prob, that was Chckdsk not starting (it would get stuck at 1 second) now my question is these problems interelated, and if so do i really have to reinstall My copy of windows 7 ?(please don't tell me i have to. D=)

I have never encountered any problems from Beta to RC. but the retail version is really giving me a big headache (i had to reinstall twice alrdy.)

Welcome to the forums Ex14
I am confused by your statements above. Can or cannot you change the names?

Well I can Change the names but not to the ones I want. =/

For Example My music library = "The Heard"

It wouldn't accept the aforementioned one. HOWEVER if i renamed it to "Hear" It changes without a hitch
