Default How do you permanelty delete these folders?

I'd like to keep certain folders in user file of both XP and Vista from resurrecting - folders such as contacts, my music, favorites (for explorer which I don't use),etc
Could someone tell me how to do it?

Noctua NH U12P 1366
OCZ DDR3 Triple Channel Gold Version 6GB (8-8-8-24)
Windows Vista Ultimate X64
750GB Hardisk
Antec P182 Case: Quiet but not very good for cooling

Laptop: Lenovo Thinkpad SL500

My System Specs


I've done it before. Go to run and type in "regsvr32 /u mydocs.dll". After that you should be able to delete My Music at least, not sure about the others. Some programs that use the My Music folder may still try to recreate it though, so I guess you'd have to change the settings in programs you use if that happens. If something gets messed up though you can turn the recreatation back on with "regsvr32 mydocs.dll".
