When you open the My Computer screen and your Documents folder is missing but all the other users folders are there try this tweak.
  • Go To START - RUN And Type REGEDIT
  • Navigate To HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / Software / Microsoft / Windows / Current Version / Explorer / DocFolderPaths

[Once you click the DocFolderPaths folder you should see all the user’s folders.]
  •  Add a new string value
  • Value Name: your user name
  • Value Data: the path to your docs folder ( ex. C:\Documents and Settings\your docs folder )

Exit Registry editor and open my computer, now you will see My Documents Folder.
