    Vista Home Premium SP1
    Two partitions on HDD. For some reason, after having inserted a USB memory
    stick, the two partitions became C: and E: with the memory stick as D:
    I renamed the stick to G:, and renamed the 2nd (data) partition back to D:.
    All is working OK except - the Documents link on the Start Menu is empty,
    its Properties are empty. How do I get the Documents link on the Start Menu
    to point to the Documents folder?
    Also If I click on my user name link on the Start menu there are several
    white "folders" with no names that I cannot seem to delete.

    Any solution?

    Oh! Why don't you help him rather than junk up this ng with your psycho
    babble? Oh...I forgot you're nothing but a lying linux troll! You're too
    stupid and far too broke to afford Vista so how could you possibly help
    anyone in this Vista general ng with Vista problems? Answer...you can't!
    Get lost troll and don't bother to come back this time.
    Lying linux loser!

    Right click on the documents link in your start menu and go to
    properties/location and point the link to the location of your actual
    documents folder.

    And when he removes the memory stick and it reverts back to "D", do it
    again?

    Giggle.

    Another classic example of how screwed up Windows REALLY is. It can't
    by itself always remember drive assignment letters due to sloppy
    programming, but some little no name application can. Laughable.

    Naturally Frank will scream Vista is the best OS ever. Sure, right.
    Only to the uninformed and fools.

    XP. Smaller, generally faster, no pain in the ass UAC.

    Frank is always such a idiot. He fell head over heels for the most
    expensive version of Vista. Marketing hype. Only uninformed pinheads,
    MS fanboys and village idiots buy Ultimate. Microsoft's own TechNet
    web site shows why buying Ultimate is foolish for 99.9% percent of
    users. I wonder how many here got suckered. <snicker>

    If you believe that is true, then why are you using Vista and not XP?
    Are you insane?
    I'm not the one who thinks XP is better than Vista and yet doesn't use
    XP, and yet can't get his one little install of Vista to run properly.
    That idiot would be you!

    He fell head over heels for the most
    I'm not the moron who said, in this ng, that he needed Vista Ultimate
    yet was too cheap to spend the extra 20 bucks for it and instead got
    Vista Business.
    That moron would be you.

    Only uninformed pinheads,
    hehehe....that's funny, seeing as how you yourself said you needed and
    should have gotten Ultimate?
    Are you crazy or what?

    Microsoft's own TechNet
    Well maybe I'm not 99.99% of users. And I doubt that your 99.99% of
    users are the real 99.99% of users.
    I think your nuts!

    That's funny, I don't see any reference to your quoted "99.99% of users
    don't need Ultimate" at that URL.
    Did you just make up that number?
    Well...?

    I NEVER said any such thing. Typical of Frank to lie his dumb ass off.
    You are LYING Frank. Nothing new about that, that's what you always
    do.

    Liar! Try google,(if you know how!).
    Sorry, but maybe that dementia is further along than you first
    indicated, but your words are on google.
    Have bubba find them for you.

    Nothing new about that, that's what you always do.

    Hey bozo, your words not mine.
    So why are you using Vista if you think XP is better?

  16. Well doofus, since you're making some inference you know how to use
    Google and you claim I said what you claim, the ball is in your court
    to prove it. Naturally you'll just crawl away on your belly tail
    between your legs like you always do because you're nothing but a damn
    liar.

    Sorry loser, you said it, you look it up.
    I don't really give a rats ass!

    Naturally you'll just crawl away on your belly tail
    Naturally you can't truthfully respond because I've caught you (as
    usual) in another one of your lies.
    Best you get that dementia checked!...LOL!

    There you go again. YOU said I said it. You simply can't stop lying
    can you. When asked for proof, you just bluster and make more false
    statements. That's you MO. You do it constantly every time you get
    caught in one of your lies.
