In Windows Explorer, Libraries folder is duplicated under Desktop

I accidentally enabled HomeGroup, which messed up my folder permissions, resulting in padlock icons under Libraries sub-folders.

· Import clean/default Libraries registry
· System Restore
· Re-register "actxprxy.dll" and "ieproxy.dll"

Nothing seems to fix it.
