    Brink,
    I did step 2 download but I can not yet restart PC because I am doing backup Image Check which has been running for hours and hours (about 15hours with 3 to go)and I dont want interupt it otherwise I have to start again. So I will restart later and inform you of the results. Do I have to Import those Keys back again??

    Ok. If you're restoring an image dated before doing step 2, then yeah you'll need to do it again after the image has been restored.

    Otherwise, there's no need.

    In that case, manually go to the location below in your registry, delete the {F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83} subkey under DelegateFolders, and restart.

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders

    Great news. No need to do anything else.

    For some reason the .reg file from step 2 was not being successfully merged, but I'm glad manually doing what was in the .reg file worked for you.

    I removed the following key and it got rid of my double drive problem in explorer/file manager. But in the open/save dialog boxes I still see two drives. Any fix for that too?

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders\{F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83}

    Hello Ken, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Did you restart the computer afterwards to fully apply?

    Yes, repeatedly. I still have the drive appear twice in the open/save dialogs. can't figure out why. would that be a different reg key then?
