"Documents.library-ms" is no longer working.

"Documents.library-ms" is no longer working. THis library can be safely deleted from your computer. Folders that have been included will not be affected.

I cannot open or save into my documents.  Everyone wants money to fix this error message.  This computer is brand new and this problem has been on it since day one.  None of the libraries folders work.

Oddly enough, it seems to fix this problem you need to delete the misbehaving library first.  Deleting a library does not delete the content of the folder.  To fix this problem, open Windows Explorer, right-click on the corresponding library and choose Delete. Click Yes when asked for confirmation.

Then, in the navigation pane of Windows Explorer, right-click on Libraries and click Restore default libraries.  This recreates the library that you just deleted. This option will only restore the default libraries that came with Windows 7.
