Can't open "My Recent Documents" folder

In my computer when I go into local disk > documents and settings, then into the folder named for the owner of the computer and then when I try to access the "My Recent Documents" folder, then explorer freezes. I can hear the pc running something and after some seconds, I am still not able to access the folder? It is not happening with any other folder and I am logged in as a owner? Does anyone know how to solve this issue? Thanks.

After you right click the Start Button, and then go to Properties, you will be able to find a way to clear that folder.

Thanks but I do not want to delete the contents of the folder, I only want to browse it like I used to previously. So, if you can tell me how to access this drive then it will be helpful.

Alright, so I had deleted the contents and that looks to have solved the issue. I am not able to access it like I used to be. It seems to me that it got full and therefore was giving me trouble.
