Your user folder will still show when you navigate down to and open the C:\Users folder under Computer in the navigation pane, but not as a separate group or folder.
Thanks yet again Brink.

I've changed the Registry setting.
I'll come back and whine if it doesn't work.

Ok. I'll have some cheese snacks ready for us to go along with the whine.

MS Office 2007 ignored that Registry setting.

However, I noticed that I didn't complete the tutorial correctly, so I'll try again (I forgot the 64 bit setting).

Update

OK I have:
  • Finished the tutorial
  • Discovered that it isn't MS Office 2007's fault.
When I click on a link in the "Favorites" section, it creates a User Folder entry in the Navigation pane and opens it there.

Odd. Did you delete the PinToNameSpaceTree string value at both locations if there?

Is this only in Office, or anywhere?

It is strange

I don't have that entry/value.

It's frustrating because it's difficult to make it do it.
Earlier it was doing it in Windows Explorer itself.
Since Windows Explorer crashed and restarted, it hasn't done it.

Windows Explorer has been a bit "crash happy" since I reinstalled Windows 7 in September (I suspect Avast).

I'll restart my PC again (maybe that will fix it).

Update

It seems to be behaving itself now.
Maybe I forgot to restart after I modified the 2nd Registry entry.

Thanks Brink.

I've had to reverse the change ...

I've had to reverse the change, because the "Automatically expand to current folder" is behaving erratically.
Sometimes it doesn't expand.
Other times the view resets (after I minimise and then reshow the Explorer window).

Hello Peter,

That's odd. I haven't been able reproduce that issue on my system so far. Please keep us up to date, and I'll do some more testing.

I agree that it is weird.

Since no one else has complained about this, I have to assume that it is caused by some strange interaction with something else I have installed/running on my PC.

The "Automatically expand to current folder" setting seems to be running the way it used to (so far).
Of course it is expanding my User folder now.

I haven't added any Explorer add-ons (e.g. HashCheck Shell Extension or IconViewer Shell Extension).
Maybe one of the context menu additions is responsible.
