I have tried to explain the new folder setup in Vista but maybe I didn't
explain it well enough..
I think what you need to do is open Windows Explorer and select
Organize/Folder and Search Option. Click the View Tab and select the option
"Do not show hidden files and folders", click Apply OK. Close Windows
Open Windows Explorer again and all of the junctions that we discussed
before will no longer be visible. All of the user folders that you can
actually use will be visible in the Users folder.
One other thing that I missed in our original thread is that you appear to
be using the old Classic Start Menu. This start menu is radically different
from the Vista start menu. If you want to take a look at the Vista start
menu, right click the Start Button and select Properties. Click the top
option for Start Menu there and click Apply/OK.
