You can restore that folder to previous stage by using restore previous versions option in Windows 7. For that you don't have to restore the entire PC.

What kind of alteration you have made? Change the security settings, deleted some folders or what?

By the way, if you have change the security permission of that folder, you simple change it by right clicking on the folder then select security then change the security permission rights.

If you have altered the properties of the folder, just right click on the folder then select properties then on Library tab, click the Restore default button.

If you have hide the Document icon on your Libraries, just click the Libraries icon then on the right pane, right click the Documents icon then tick the Show in navigation pane in the attribute then apply.

If you have deleted files or folders, just browse the Users folder the click on the user name you are currently using. On the right pane right click on the My Documents folder then select the Previous Versions tab and select on the Folder versions list where you want to restore you’re my documents folder. This comes from the restore point.
