Windows 7: Windows 7 Problem with a folder being linked to library

Windows 7 Problem with a folder being linked to library

I had a folder named 'Documents'. I linked to the libraries with out realizing the ramification of this action. The 'My Documents' folder is not longer linked to the libraries.

I do not want the 'Documents' folder linked to the libraries but I do not know how to disconnect the folder.

I have deleted the folder but when I create the folder again it gets linked back. I do not know how to resolve this problem.

I tried to rename the folder in libraries that is 'Documents' to 'My Documents' but it will not allow me to do that. When I try to create a new libraries folder called 'My Documents' it tells me there already is one.

I am complete lost as to how to resolve my issue and get what I want.

I could use some assistance please.
