Removed Lightroom completely and plugg-in's. Restructured photo files in Win 7 Pictures. Re-loaded Lightroom and Imported existing photos as a Copy. After Edit I "Save in Original Folder" and all works great ..

After re-structuring your folders, I think you should have used the "Add" option when you Imported them. If you used "Copy", Lightroom would copy the folders with images to another location of your choosing. You would now have two identical groups of images on your computer. "Copy" would be used to download images from a memory card, for example. Perhaps I am misunderstanding, however.

Perhaps this is something you already know, but folders/images are not placed "in" LR when you Import them. They exist wherever they were if you "Add" them to the Catalog, or are copied or moved to a folder of your choosing when you select "Copy" or "Move" on Import. A LR "Catalog" is just data about your images (edits, metadata, etc.), thumbnails, and information about where they are located.
Perhaps there is a reason you want to have a separate file of edited images, but if you edit images in LR there is no reason to put them into another folder. All the edit information for each image resides in the Catalog database (and side car file if you use that option). Edits can be changed anytime or deleted at any time leaving you with the untouched original. If you use the "Edit In" option in LR to use Photoshop for some editing, you can store the PS edited JPEG, TIFF, etc. right next to the original in LR. A copy of an image edited in LR &/or PS can be "Exported" whenever the need arises such as for email, web use, sending to a printer, etc.
