So I guess I'm back to square one????
I have been trying to communicate, as delicately as I can, that I believe you've had a corrupt installation from the start. Now I'll be a bit more direct.
There are no "My X" directories in Windows 10 and never have been, ever. The fact that you're seeing them means something is radically wrong.
You could try any number of things, but if this is a new machine I'd be most inclined to do a "Reset this PC" with "Keep My Files" if you don't already have your user data backed up somewhere. If that doesn't work then I'd back up my user data and do a clean install of Windows 10 using a brand spankin' new copy of the Windows 10 ISO using the Media Creation Tool on the Windows 10 Download page.
I appreciate your reply. When I first finished this build I installed Windows 10 (full retail version) from a USB thumb drive (it was purchased from Newegg) If I am understanding you correctly, you are telling me that I had a corrupt installation from the start?
I am sure that you know MUCH more about these things than I do But I am having a problem understanding why I have THREE pc's that have the same problem???? Two of the pc's have Windows 10 Pro that were upgraded when Microsoft offered the upgrade for free. The third pc I purchased Windows 10 Pro (full retail version) All three of these computers have the same situation.
When I first saw the "My Pictures" etc on the two upgraded pc's I thought that some how those folders were picked up from Windows 7 when I downloaded the upgrade. Now that I have done a "clean" install on pc #3 and I have the same situation, I am perplexed to say the least.
I am not relishing the idea of starting over on pc #3 (and maybe pc #2 & #1) with a reinstall!! Is there a problem if I just leave those folders there????
Can pictures on longer be added to a post in this forum???
