Couple questions for ya:

1) Is this the only profile on your pc?
2) If not is your normal one password protected?

Okay, so I created another Admin profile, logged into that, and then copied all the old :c/user/Matt info to a /user/Mattnew folder. Then I logged in w/ the new "Mattnew" Profile and changed the profile name to "Matt" and deleted the old "Matt" profile. In "c", the user registry still says "Mattnew", but everything else is matt. Also, my new "Matt" profile has the correct documents, just like my old one did.

But there is ONE problem still:

When I go into my computer, on the left hand side there is a list of directories. Often there is a "My Documents (2)" but it brgs me to the SAME location as My Documents does. So it's like a duplicate, but I can't find it.

Also, when I want to send something from the start menu somewhere, when I click "send to", all those locations have a (2) as well, but they also go to the same location.

I think there might be an issue of a copy somewhere, but I can't fucking find it. Anyone help? Would I be better off tomorrow just transfering all my user data to a External, reinstalling the OS, and then copying the data back over?

Do you have hidden files unviewable?
If so while in a window(like documents folder or music folder, etc), tap alt, click on tools, click on Folder options... , then click on the view tab, look where it says hidden files and folders, and check to show them all, and maybe the copy you can't find will show up.

Maybe you could try turning on sharing on all the folders giving you trouble, or turning off sharing if its already on. Or maybe you could delete the original problem profile. I have pretty much the same profile setup as you and have no problem.

So I enabled Hidden folders, but I guess I just don't know where to LOOK for them.

I really don't wanna do a full re-format just for a user profile b/c honestly, it'll take more time/effort to reinstall all my shit then it's worth.

Try this;

On the left side is just short cuts. If you go to "C:\Users\Mattnew\Links" you can edit the top of the list on the left or just change the folder name.

Could you attach a screenshot?

C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

here's the location to your Send To Folder, just remove the duplicates inside it. You will need to show hidden files if you haven't already

And for your Favorite Links in My computer, Here is the location to the folder

C:\Users\(user-name)\Links

You can insert icons in it. Or you can also open My Computer, Go to the desired Location, Right Click Favorites (Top Left) and click, Add current location.

Hope this helps
