    I recently deleted my public folder on accident, I have tried restoring it, recovery, creating a new User account, some fixes I found online that mess with the registry, and sfc scan, nothing has helped. I am unable to install some applications like Skype,when I try it tells me it cant access %PUBLIC%\Desktop. I cant edit most files, and whenever I create a new folder and name it i get a message that says Could not find this item, if I hit try again it works. Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this?

    Your help is greatly appreciated
