possibly some inadvertant slip of a mouse drag that caused a duplicate of all the music files in the My Music folder to be created in the main level of the My Documents folder? Or are all the rogue items in the main level all shortcuts?
Very carefully drill down from the My Computer icon to your C:\ drive and look at the various items in full detail view. If not already set so, you should also turn on "show extension" and "show hidden files" and view it all with the "Folders" button on the menu toolbar turned on. This way you will be able see exactly what is where. If these extras are just that, extras that got created in some unknown manner, you can just delete them while leaving the originals intact inside the My Music folder within the main My Documents folder.

When I open the My Documents folder the My Music files open along (mixed) with all the My Documents folders. How do I get the My Music files out of the My Docs folder menu and back where they belong? There is also a My Music folder placed correctly in the My Docs folder. It too has all the music files correctly placed. So there are double My Music files. I hope this makes sense.
