Modify this key: Path:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Environment] key:
first delete this key that already exists (if it's typ is: REG_SZ
if not you have a more serious explorer issue), then in it's place create a new key of typ:Expandable String
by right clicking in the right pane.
it's type will be: REG_EXPAND_SZ
name it windir
as it was before, and make the data %SystemRoot%
This should solve the problem, i have added the script for the same process below, but i have not had any success with it. The keys in certain folders are not easily changed by script.
NOTE: the type of the key is usually what is changed... somehow by Windows, from an expand key to a normal REG_SZ
. This simply corrects this mistake.
