Are there any empty folders in My Documents, also? If yes, delete it there and see if it comes back

Windows keeps duplicating the folder but duplicates won't have any files in them and the file location path is never right but I cant fix this, i've tried everything and I lost some files trying to fix the problem so please if someone can halp me I would really appreciate it.

Hi, my problem started out with my "documents" folder under my C:\Users\myuser dir. I thought maybe it was because of Vundo but I'm officially spyware free and virus free and yet my documents folder continues to duplicate itself. In trying to fix this problem I may have made it worse, I don't know. I tried various ways of getting rid of these duplicates and one thing I did was change the location under the location tab of the properties window. now my documents dir is just all messed up and I really don't want to reinstall vista so if someone can help me I would really appreciate it.

Thanks a bunch!

I'm sorry you slipped through the cracks and got ignored. Are you still having problems?
