A friend's computer... total nightmare... she doesn't know much about computers, and it seems thoroughly messed up. Tried installing Windows Defender, and it couldn't find her "My Pictures" folder so it didn't install. So I looked under her My Documents folder. It's missing the My Pictures and My Music folders. Plus, the other folders that are there, such as My Videos, etc., their icons are not special, they look like ordinary folders.

Her computer's "Shared Documents" section looks fine, with all the usual folders with special icons, etc.

Any thoughts?


Computer: HP Pavilion dv1000
OS: XP2

Try a system restore to an earlier date before the problem started.

chickenwings, For the wrong icons for My Pictures and My Music folders etc. Tweak UI has a Repair function to repair those icons. You'll find it under Repair and just use the drop-down arrow button to access the various folders, hilite them one at a time then click the Repair Now button. Download Tweak UI for Free at the link below. After you install it you'll find it in Start>Programs>Powertoys for Windows XP>Tweak UI.
