    Create a new, temporary, folder called Docs on your C: drive.

    Install TweakUI.
    http://download.microsoft.com/download/winme/Install/1.0/WinMe/EN-US/Tweakui.exe

    Open TweakUI and go to the 'My Computer' tab.
    Under 'Special Folders' choose 'My Documents' in the drop-down.
    Press 'Change Location' and point to the C:\Docs folder.
    Log out and back in, or reboot.

    Create a new 'My Documents' folder and do the
    same again in TweakUI, pointing it back to the
    new 'My Documents' folder.

    The "My Documents" folder appeared corrupted. I found out later there were
    some hidden files. Spyware?? Anyway I made a big mistake and deleted the
    folder thinking I could create a new one. It will not create a new folder
    message reads there is already a folder with that name. I can't retrieve it
    from any of the utilities with windows or Norton System Works.

    Any ideas? Thank you in advance.....
