Open up Regedit, and search for a key called "Shell Folders". See what the Desktop entry points to and fix the directory if necessary (it should point to %USERPROFILE%\Desktop).

I can change the setting but it always reverts back to root of drive C:

I bootedup bartpe and deleted ntuser.dat then rebooted into windows so it can recreate the profile. Then I booted back into bartpe and copied then entire old profile into the new one and rebooted and it was fixed.

Hey, you're running the zune theme? Cool theme, but watercolor is cooler.

I use Watercolor WITHOUT windowblinds. Get it off my server. You need patched Uxtheme, also on the server.

I want the Zune theme but I can't find it anywhere :cry:
Anyone know where it is?

EDIT: Less than 5 mins after I posted this; I found it! If anyone else would like to have it, they can get the MSI from the Microsoft website, http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... pTheme.msi
