Well I just screwed up big time. I was adding a guest account to my Windows 7 PC so a friend could use it and I clicked on Manage your Credentials and deleted the Generic Credentials account. Now my public folders are locked and I get the error "C:\Users\Public\Documents\ [folder] is not accessible. Access is denied. " How do I correct this knee-jerk dumbazz mistake. Trying system restore and establishing a new generic account did not correct my error. I swear I have not seen that before and I thought it a security risk and I think of myself as an above average computer knowledgeable user. I guess not! Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Well I went in and changed Folder Options to default and now the Public Folders that were locked and inaccessible are now accessible again. I have no idea what's going on and I am guessing that Generic Credentials had nothing to do with the problem. However, I am sure something else will show up eventually.
