if I do run (Winkey + R) and type "C:\", explorer shows up in "C:\".
I'd like to know how to do the same for the My Computer folder in Windows Vista / 7.

The easiest way is to type
shell:mycomputerfolder or Win+E
I wanted this too, but I've just gotten in the habit of opening the C: drive through the Run dialog then pressing backspace to go up a folder into My Computer.
It's not really the "right" answer but it gets me there in just one additional keystroke so I'm happy with it. Much better than memorizing any GUIDs, anyway.
