    Default Deleted documents and downloads folder now they keep confusing

    No backups, no system restore, nothing of the sort. No data to worry about either. But the folders were being annoying confusing themselves for each other, my downloads shortcuts were renamed to documents and pointed to the documents directory but the icon still looked like the downloads icon. Read that carefully, windows has gone nuts. So I deleted the two folders in attempts to fix this problem but it's still happening.
