Tim / Jai >>> Yes, you're quite right to be cautious:  I only passed the 
URL on as it might have meant something to you, Tim;  but I had no idea 
what consequences the proposed fix might have (it did look a bit 
draconian to me!).  Of course, as you say, you could risk experimenting 
by renaming the folders.  Anyway, if you're trying to restore a very 
customised desktop, this proposal looks way to radical as a starting 
point.  Sorry can't help more.  :-(
