TweakUI, the free utility from Microsoft, does just that.

Note however that My Documents (including My Images, My Music and My Video), Favorites and Desktop can be changed without this utility or without opening the registry. For My Documents, just right-click on the icon and change path in the Properties. Personnaly, I forward My documents to the D:\ root to put data in a different partition.

Then in Windows Explorer, just drag the Favorites and Desktop folders from the C:\Documents settings\[users] to the new destination. Again, I use D:\.
