Shared Documents Folder Missing Under My Computer

I used the TweakUI software to change the location of Shared Documents from the c:\ drive to the d:\ drive.  I also made a change in the registry to change the default to the d:\ drive.  I re-booted the computer and the Shared Documents folder no longer appears when opening My computer.  What can I do to get the folder to appear under My Computer?

try this from within Tweak UO

Select "My Computer" from the options displayed on the left. There will be two entries listed under the "My Computer" icon on the right. Check the option for "Files Stored on This Computer." Click the "Apply" button to save the change, and then close the program.
