I agree with the people who have already posted to say why My Documents is a no-no. unless, that was one option presented in the setup wizard (and not the default).

e.g.

wizard step1: choose type of install
*Single user or portable install
*Multiple users

wizard later step: save location for current user (skip this for portable install, just use $AppDir\Saves, user can change later)
*%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Project64\saves\ for states, %AppData%\Project64\saves\ for native saves (recommended for roaming profiles)
*My Documents\My Project64 saves\
*Browse for save folder... (choose your own)

etc
