Windows 7: Folder redirection messed it all up! HELP!!

Folder redirection messed it all up! HELP!!

I had a GPO that I was testing with my account (folder redirection). I mistakenly deleted the GPO completely. Now, my computer, every time that I login trys to connect to that path which no longer exists. So, every time I login it says windows cannot find \\servername\sharename. When I right click documents or desktop, it still shows that location, which isn't there.

How can I get the defualt directories back so windows isn't trying to find a path that doesn't exist?

I don't have a DC in front of me at the moment. Did you check your account's properties in Active Directory Users and Computers?

Jack, it is a Domain Controller (actual server) where the Active Directory Domain resides.
The user properties in Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in (mmc) has like 20 tabs One of them may be settings redirection.
