User folder is a subgroup of Desktop in Windows 7

#1
Hi,
Using Windows 7. Go to start Username "Joe". My User folder "Joe" is a subgroup of Libraries. I think the folder organization is messed up and probably the reason I can't get MediaCenter to work. Also My Documents data is found under Desktop/Libraries/Documents and also under Desktop/Joe. So all my data is duplicated. See below for description.

Desktop:
Libraries
indDocuments
indindMy Documents [also below under "Joe"]
ininddPublic Documents
indindPublic Pictures
Music
Pictures
Videos Home Group
Joei
nd
iAppData [strange!]
Contacts
indDesktop [also above?]
Downloads
indFavorites
indMy Documents [same as My Documents in Libraries above]
My Music [also above?]
indMy Pictures [also above?]
My Videos [also above?]
indSaved Games
Searches
Computer
Network
Control Panel
Recycle Bin

Start Computer/Local Disk (C/Users/Joe [also contains "AppData"]

Please advise.
Thanks,
Joe

What you are explaining is a little complicated, so maybe a snipping tool picture would be better. If you need to edit personal info, use Paint. Attach using the paperclip on the Advanced Replies.

But libraries are just place holders for other folders. There are no actual files there, but you can manipulate them. So your Libraries looks fine.

Homegroups are also separate and just give you a location to finds certain folders, doesn't mean there are multiple copies.

But again, a picture might help explain your situation better.
