I need to reset My documents folder to the default settings.

Upon attempting to install Norton Systemworks Basic 12, I get this message "The virtual folder representing the My Documents is invald.  Please correct this before installation."  How do I reset this?

I had to change the settings around on the "Documents" folder because I use a 2nd hardrive for all my data.  How do I reset this folder back to the default setting?
