this is so complicated. i doubt i can even explain it but i can try.

welll ok i go to vista start menu, click on documents, nothing happens, its as if i click on a blank space.

so i right click on the documents word, and everything is blank.

i tried creating a new documents folder but it wont link back from the start menu, nothing happens when i click it.

there was a very confusing problem before this, dealing with the user files being inside of each other and all over the place, i figured a system restore would fix it but the files were in their same locations, except upon the restore, the documents folder was gone, and its contents were in my user file.... thing.

the whole mess of confusing problem started when i was moving my documents folder and pictures folder to my c drive partition, away from d drive partition.

helppp... if you understand what im talking about

Move them back

OR find the registry file that tells where the my documents point and change it

I hate to say this but, best thing is to either back up your stuff onto a harddrive that isn't going to be reinstalled *i got a great 160gb for a small price a best buy works great and is firewire...* then once u have backed up... then reboot thats my only advice

You can change where the registry locates the folders with a program such as TweakVI.

TweakVI is for Vista.
TweakUI is for XP.
