  • My Documents icon in new userprofile points to folder of original account

    On a Windows XP SP1 machine, I created a default user profile from the administrator account and saved it to the Default User folder.
    When a new user logs in, the default user profile is created and the customized desktop appears. So far, so great.

    However, when the user rightclicks the My Documents icon on the desktop, the icon points to the folder of the account used for the default user profile, instead of pointing to the accounts own unique folder.

    For example
    ---------------
    My Documents => C:\My Documents\administrator
    ..instead of..
    My Documents => C:\My Documents\johnsmith

    For some reason, the accountname "administrator" is not replaced by "johnsmith".

    I used to do this frequently in Windows 2000 without any problem.

    Anyone any idea? Thanks!
