My Documents folder will not open

The My Documents folder on my laptop desktop will not open eithwer when I click on it or when I right click and click open. I can access the folder through My Computer. How can I get the folder to work again please?

First ensure it is finding the 'Target'. To do this Right click the My documents folder select Properties make sure the 'Target' is correct.

Have done that Recap but still no joy.

Have done a system restore and that has solved the problem. Still don't know why it happened though!

I have the same problem.

The My Documents folder does not open from the Start, neither if I right click on it and choose open. BUT it opens when I choose Explore.
My Pictures and My Music works fine.

I tried to relocate it and then moved it back. It didn't help.

I used System Restore, and it solved the problem, but only temporarily. It works in safe mode though.

Very weird.

Any ideas?
