Assuming everything is "Working" and it's just the names of the folders now messed up, look for a Desktop.ini (will be a hidden file), these have tendencies to rename folders (its a leftover from XP where MS hacked the folders "makeup" to produce those nice lovely pictured folders instead of plain boring normal ones).

Yes I've deleted the desktop.ini files and it reverts back to the 'proper' folder name. Its such a mess this as the user sees 'My Documents' and the server end shows 'Documents' and the folder is actually called MyFiles!
I've put a file screen on the servers to stop desktop.ini being written to - shame not all of our servers can do this (some are plain 2003)
I can't believe MS think its acceptable for folders to 'rename' themselves - I know its only the view but it confuses the hell out of users!

Wouldn't this cause an additional delay when logging in because of folder redirections?

It doesn't seem to have any delay on the logins? I don't think theres any other way around this either.

Are you putting the Libraries reg hack on the base image to ensure it's off for all machines? Seems a right pain for something that should be in a GPO by default. Glad I've seen this thread though, should save a lot of time!

Yeah we'll be putting this hack into the latest Windows 7 build. It just creates clutter/confusion in a school/work environment I think.

AFAIK folder redirection will create the desktop.ini for the folders.
FYI you can also use GPO to deploy reg hacks using Preferences.
