How to fix broken user Folder Redirection in Vista

I need some help on how to return back my user folders back to the
original default location settings fin Vista ultimate. I recently was
easily able to redirect all eleven user folders to a different drive.
Then made a mistake by moving again all these folders to another new
location / another drive, not realizing that there were serviceable
folders that needed to be moved in a specific way in order to maintain
the serviceable status. Realizing my mistake, I then attempted several
different ways of coping what I had back to the original default
locations on the 'c' drive. But now I have ended up with duplicate user
folders on the 'c' drive. The start task menu has my user name twice,
the picture folder does not wok (probably wrong path) and I am also
concerned about the other non-service folder that was moved, named
AppData, which did'nt seem to be a special serviceable folder. I do
have all the folders in the the different locations, and looking for a
way to get all back to where I started before moving the folder around -
I seem to have all the folders intact, but the serviceable properties
are probably corrupt due to the unconventional moving. Can anyone point
me to a source that can guide me how to eliminate the duplicate user on
the start task and also get me back on how to revert back to the default
original setup for the user folders on the 'c' drive. I think I may
have to reconfigure the registry somewhere, but don't know where.
Please help.
Ben
