    Unable to select a target Folder

    Hi All

    I am trying to set my target location of my folders etc so that they are set to my network drive and not locally, but the target part under the location tab is not editable, i also do not see the 3 boxes underneath, is this a GPO setting that i'm not sure of? any ideas of it's location?

    You may need to change this in the registry
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

    Not sure if that will help

    Weird, it seemed to fix it, but the location was still showing as local if you viewed the settings, i restarted the PC, and now the file explorer is blank.... :S the green bar going up very slowly, but it's been like this for 5 minutes....
