Windows 7: start menu user folder link named "UsersFiles"

13 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
start menu user folder link named "UsersFiles"

Recently setup a new desktop and after installing Windows 7 and setting up I noticed my user folder is named "UsersFiles" in my start menu (as well as on the desktop). The folder path itself is correct and I've tried creating a new user but that user has the same issue. If I can't fix this without reinstalling I can just hide the links and ignore it but I would rather fix it. I've poured over search topics, registry entries, and other options but just cannot seem to find a solution.

Hello and welcome greatwroth mate if you haven't already try these in safe mode < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
if no go these might be worth a run just to eliminate the basic stuff
ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
(If you are running Kaspersky security it might rant about ADW just ignore to or disable Kaspersky for the duration of the ADW scan)
