    Here's what I did to duplicate your problem in Virtual PC and I was able to reset to default. Note that after reboot, everything is back to normal.

    That's one of the first things I tried to do, but I got the same error message as before (posted below).

    Oh wait. Seems like something went through - the D:\ drive changed back to Desktop when I was trying to fool around with the location. Thanks everyone! I apologize for my troubles. I really appreciate it.
