Double My Documents

    Windows XP SP3

    My drive D has a folder Ersoy Documents and Asaf Documents
    When I go to Start > My Document I get "Ersoy Document". This is how I set
    it up.

    If I go to My Computer in addition to all the drives and Shared Documents
    folder I also have a folder "Ersoy's Documents". It's contents are identical
    to My Documents/Ersoy Documents. I can not delete the folder. If I delete
    any file from it, the file is also deteted from My Documents.

    If I hover the mouse over it I see the following: "Contains files and
    folders shared between the users of this computer". I do not have any
    folders and drives which are shared.

    Obviously, it is an image of My Documents folder but how can I get rid of
    it, and what is its use?
