Fire up Regedit (Start -> Run... -> regedit) and browse to this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders


Change the value of "Personal" to another path (it's set to %USERPROFILE%\My Documents by default), and you're set. You'll probably have to log out and back in before the change takes effect.
