Windows 7: 2 Username Folders

2 Username Folders

Why do I have 2 Username Folders? And they are not the same.
I am the only user on this computer. Username is CBredt
Running Windows Home Premium on a Desktop computer.

If I click the Windows Key, then on CBredt at the top right, I get Folder 1.

If I go into Windows Explorer and click C drive, Users, CBredt, I get Folder 2.

Folder 1 contains the usual plus a folder called My Pictures.
Folder 2 contains the usual, but no My Pictures folder.

Am I doing something wrong? Why 2 folders?
Thanks, cb

What does your USERNAME mean???
As I read through the threads and posts I am so intrigued by our posters' Usernames! Most of them are so interesting, funny, and clever, but some are downright puzzling! Would love to know how everyone came to use their own Username. Mine is pretty obvious --- I'm the queen of imperfection! :p...

Change windows username (ComputerName/Username
I set up my computer a long time ago with a stupid username, and I wanna know how to change it. I can change my logon username, but not the actual username (COMPUTERNAME/Username) or the user directory (C:/Users/USERNAME).
