Public folder has wrong name in some views

If I use explorer to look at Desktop, I see some special icons
'Unspecified', which are:

My user folder
Computer
Network
Control Panel (not actually visible on Desktop, as it is not ticked to
appear)
Recycle Bin
Modules


These also appear in the bread crumb navigation.

The weird thing is that Modules was the name of a folder I have in the
Desktop some time ago, and I was using it for some work. But this Modules
folder is actually the same as C:\Users\Public.

How can I rename this back to Public? The actual folder is still called
Public.

Re: Public folder has wrong name in some views
Have you checked in the desktop.ini file for something like:

[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=Modules

the default value is:

[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell 32.dll,-21816


The other way to assign a display name different than the folder name is via
the registry.

"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ex plorer\CLSID\{4336a54d-038b-4685-ab02-99bb52d3fb8b}"

If this key exists & has a default value of "Modules", that would make the
Public folder appear with that name on the Desktop.
