My Documents Folder - Remove /Replace on Desktop

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}\ShellFolder

Value Name: Attributes
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0xf0500174 = Hidden, 0xf0400174 = Default)

Modify the value called "Attributes" and set it to either "0xf0500174" to hide or "0xf0400174" to display My Documents.
Click on a blank area of desktop and press F5 to refresh for the change to take effect. Note: This tweak can also by used on a system wide basis by entering the same values under the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE] hive.

Vanished from where? Your Start Menu or desktop, or both?

If XP then right click on any open area of the Desktop
Click [Properties], select the [Desktop] tab, then click [Customize Desktop] button
Select the [General] tab
In the [Desktop Icons] section place or remove the checkmark next to My Documents
