Error 1606

Error 1606
Greetings

I have read each of the entries on the related thread, and still have a problem. The message, in its entirety, is as follows:

Error 1606. Could not access network location
%USERPROFILE%\Recent\.

Under User Shell Folders, there was no entry at all for Recent. I created one, as directed, and rebooted. The problem remains. All entries on the right side, under Data, start with %ALLUSERSPROFILE%. These include Common AppData, Common Desktop etc. There is now the entry I added for Recent, with %USERPROFILE%. Have I misinterpreted something?

I am running XP Home with SP2.

Many Thanks
Chip B.

Did you enter in the value data box

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools

and then click OK and then exit?

Some program may had messed up your settings in the registry. Go thur and just make sure everything matches it value for each table. If you found one missing, you have to modify, type in the data value and then click ok.

That did it, thanks. Didn't realize there were two registries to check, and the problem was in the Local Machine, not the Current User registry.

Thanks!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
