In Windows XP in my documents i have two annoying folders that refused to die, i delete them and the come back how dod i get rid of them?


I hid them which only half works coz they still show up in my documents in the start up menu which really really bugs me..

on start menu right click choose properties and there should be an option to hide them.

If anyone reading this wants to get rid of said folders permently (if you del the reapear next login) then;

Download Tweak UI from M$ to change the default folder your save window goes to when you have a Picture..

Then delete said folders

Then create a new notepad document with samename as folders and then Hide Know Extentions

Then reboot

And last but not least they have gone!
