Hi there,

Was a resolution found for this issue?

I too have the same problem with multiple "copies" of the desktop icon
appearing in my windows explorer. However the icon varies in that not only do
the different "root" icons appear in front of the label "Desktop", but also
there will be 5 copies of the desktop icon with the label "Desktop" next to
it.

Any thoughts on fixing this will be greatly appreciated.

TIA
