If you install the Microsoft Windows XP hotfix that is described in Knowledge Base Article 818078, it deletes three values in the Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Volatile Environment. These are HOMEDRIVE, HOMEPATH and HOMESHARE. If some other third-party application needs these Registry values, they will then have problems. Microsoft has a new hotfix that will fix the problems caused by the earlier hotfix. If you need it, contact Microsoft Technical Support and ask for the hotfix described in Knowledge Base article 824898. Note that you may get charged for this call.
