    My Computer Folders keep re-appearing

    Hey all,

    Both my Laptop and Desktop running Windows 10 have this issue

    i run the registry hack found here (Using 64bit as per my pc being 64bit)

    The folders re-appear after i reset my computer, they are never permanently disabled.

    i could have my computer silently run the regkey upon startup, but surely there is a less hacky way to permanently remove them.

    Great news.

    Nar, they're completely different.

    Their .reg files deleted the CLSIDs in the NameSpace key for the old method that doesn't work well now, and mine only changes the setting of the new "ThisPCPolicy" string value.
