    Why are the permissions set improperly on the Documents and Setting shortcut
    and sub directories and where do those shortcuts actually go?

    as has been said numerous times, the origional Doc and Settings folder is now a legacy folder for compatibility no longer used.

    check under USERS further down the tree.

    Why have you again changed things between different versions of Windows. We'd
    all just got used to My Documents / My Computer (and amended our core
    back-office systems/programs with that in mind) etc then you go and change
    it.. I struggle with why this has changed as i can see no benefit.

    We all want a new OS but banal elements such as this should surely have been
    left alone?? Who decides these things and doesn't wonder about the knock-on
    impact....? I despair guys..
