A way to stop Windows Updates from wiping folder favorites and adding 6 folders view?

    Jeez, man....apparently big brother knows best. Every time a major update comes down the pike, The "six folders" view is added back to my windows explorer, while the favorites folder, a carry over from Windows 7, is emptied of certain system folders. I thought about locking permissions on the 6 folders reg keys, but that didn't pan out. Other than re-applying the 6 folders delete .reg tweak every time, is there an alternate, more permanent solution?

    Thank you,
