How to reset 'Music' directory from another partition back to "C: " for any user?

On vista, clicking on 'Music' from the start menu does nothing, all location info has been wiped-its properties is empty as shown. How can I reset the location for any particular user (vista) back to the original 'User' directory, as shown on the far right? I think the problem was caused by changing music location to another partition (D) on the same hard drive, but the system is having trouble changing the default music directory back to C. Thanks for any info :)

Fixed it.

In 'C:\Users\MY NAME\' :- created a new folder named it music right clicked and selected properties clicked on the customize tab, clicked on music details, clicked on 'also apply this template to all subfolders'

When the location of the original music folder had changed to another partition, the above must have been set correctly, as the start buttons 'music' would go to that partition. I have no idea as to why it stopped working after a certain amount of time, unless somebody else was playing with the above settings :)
