Windows 7: NOT all files and folders are showing in windows explorer

NOT all files and folders are showing in windows explorer

After a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, not all Folders are showing

I went to the control panel and then went to Folder options and check the "Show All Folders" options. I have rebooted several times but I still can not see some folders. Any Ideas ????

One other quick question is that I tried to customize my Start Menu and NONE of the changes took place. For instance I told it to show "Administration Tools" in ALL Programs and the Start Menu. It shows in All Programs but not on the start menu. Maybe someone has an idea about that

Never mind. After 4-5 hours or more I finally solved these two problems.

I have other problems but I will post those later
