Right-click on "Documents" in "Libraries" section of Windows Explorer, then select "Properties". Does you normal "My Documents" folder show in the list?

If not, then use Windows Explorer to navigate to your "My Documents" folder, and go into it. Then click Include in library and select "Documents" from the drop-down menu:

Great. At least the advice I gave can at least still be useful, right? You can add other forther to the libraries too.

And welcome to the forums!

I'm having the same problem, but doing what you suggested didn't help. None of my libraries will open, not just my documents. My properties for each one shows that the normal folders are all included. I can still access the folders going into my hard drive, but not at all through the libraries folder.
