Hello DigDeep,

You might see if restoring the default Libraries may help. If not, then you might see if doing a System Restore using a restore point dated before this happened may be able to fix it for you.

Hope this helps,

Ok DigDeep,

You can also try a repair install without losing anything as well to hopefully fix it.

DigDeep,

Other than a repair install, you could create a new administrator account to see how they work in it.

If it works, then you can copy the contents of your old account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders. If everything still checks out ok, then you can delete the old user account from within the new one.

Icon-problem in libraries
In former versions, we could set a CDs front as icon in our music-folder. Now in Windows 7 it does _allmost_ the same, but it wraps an ugly yellow foler around it, look at my example: http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/5963/udklipd.jpg How do I change it back, so the CD-cover is used as icon, as...
