    Ok. Go ahead and export the key below from your registry, and upload it here. I'll take a looks at it to see if I may be able to spot an issue there.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace


    Next, check to see if you may have the registry location below. By default, you shouldn't. If you do, go ahead and export and upload it as well.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace

    What subkeys does the NameSpace key have under it at the location below?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace

    Ok. It's time for a needle in a haystack approach.

    Use the Find and Find Next feature in regedit to search for the key below for your "Music" folder. Export and upload the .reg file of each instance of the key found, and I'll take a look to see if it may be what we're looking for.
