Just found the cause of this from Microsoft . It is not a folder issue . The my documents folder is called a "junction" . The problem occurs when a program or user changes permissions on this "junction"
Multiple Application Data files folders nested many layers deep
The MS suggested fix is to use system restore to before the permissions were changed. Not useful if it happened ages ago.
Failing that, there is a probable fix:
First uninstall Java (you can reinstall the latest version afterwards).
Then, change permissions to Windows default by using Tweaking.com "Windows Repair AIO" program. Follow the preliminary steps (to the letter, especially going into 'safe' mode) then run the file permissions repairs (takes ages).
Hope it fixes it!
