I've accidently dragged "My Music" into the "Shared Documents" on my
computer. When I tried to drag the folder back to"Bobs Documents" I get the
error message: "My Music is a Windows System Folder and is required for
windows to run properly. It cannot be moved or deleted"

Can somebody advise on how I can unshare my music (the checkbox in "sharing
and security is grey i.e. uncheckable) because Itunes now no longer can find
my 30GB of music and I dont want to have to import the new location of my
music, because it will take all day.

More about : sharing music

Dutch,

Open Regedit.exe and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
Shell Folders

In the right-pane, double-click "My Music" and set it's path as follows:

%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Music

Also note that the value should be of REG_EXPAND_SZ type, and not REG_SZ.
Otherwise, this will not help.
