I used a reg cleaner and first niether docs or pics were able to be accesed. Some gray box showed. I made a reg backup and sent to my docs and desktop. I restored the backup in the reg cleaner. Still would not access so i did a system restore for earlier today and now my pics are not in start menu. Docs are but folder empty. So I undid system restore,. Same thing empty folder and my pics folder gone. Folder shows in search ....My Documents.000 8,530 kb. ....I think maybe they are in there. Since other folder is empty. Somehow I moved them.

I hate registry cleaners just for that simple reason...it's not your fault scarlett. Reg cleaners are just creepy applications that often break more than they help.

Go into your Windows Explorer, and poke around a bit. I'm betting that you will find them. The associations just need to be made back to the start menu is all. I'm sure they didn't get erased...you can even use IE to search for them if you want..just go to file, and open file, and then browse from there.

Let me know if you find them, and I will try to help you get the associations back into the start menu. :thumbsup:

Just for my clarification... Documents no longer appears on the start menu at all? Or is it just the most recently used documents folder that is empty??

My Documents folder shows, but My Pictures folder does not. My Documents folder is empty when opened. The gray box that showed earlier said something to the effect could not be foind ... may have been moved to another location. .... The folder ...My documents.ooo has content . Like I said I may of moved it to there unknowingly It has 8,530 kb while My DOcuments is empty

It probably just needed a reboot before things caught up. It sounds like all it did was empty the entries out of the recently used column, so they are still there on your system.. :thumbsup:

And what about that folder..C:\Windows\MyDocuments.000..I did not reboot, should I? How can I move the content from MyDocuments.000 to My Documents? Or am I completly off base?
