Default Winxp check a Registry entry for me?

Somehow on my new system, my Registry has some odd entries and I've got most of them figured out but there is one that I'm not sure about...

Could someone with WinXP/SP2 who feels comfortable at least looking in the Registry check and see what your system has for the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\New

Is there an entry for "Desktop"? If so, what is in the Data portion?

I have C:\Documents and Settings\useridname

Due to the oddity in my primary user Regsitry, I have created 2 new users one of which I copied my primary user Doc/Settings info to and neither of these users have a "Desktop" entry with the Data value.

I want to figure this out before I make my changes to the Registry to correct the problem...



PS...I'm not sure why there is a space in the word "current" in the registry key above...I tried to fix it by editing my post and it won't remove the space...
