I installed WinXP pro from a CD with built-in SP2 and tweaked it a lot (with registry, ...).
There are three users and fast switching is enabled (so workgroup instead of domain)
I've changed users' my documents and also shared documents paths and make users' my documents private (so user1 has no permission for reading or changing users2,3 docs)
Now there are two problems (both happen in all accounts)

1. in "Browse for folder" dialog box, there are TWO My Documents shortcuts (my docs, my comp, my docs again)
and both works correctly (i.e. no corrupt shortcut). how can I remove one of them?

2. when I enable displaying shared docs in my computer, all of users' docs folder and shared folder are displayed above HDDs, but I want WinXP to display only my docs and shared docs. I know this is possible because I've done it (don't remember how) in my previous WinXP installation which was from a different CD
