First, turn off simple file sharing (Tools > Folder options > View in any exploer window). The right lcick the my documents folder and select "sharign and security" hit the security tab, hit advanced, then the owner tab, there should be a button there, or somewhere in that windows that allows you to "take ownership" of the folder.
