Good morning all,

Now, I have an annoying problem with windows xp pro...

I have my pictures my music and various other folders
in my doc's folder that i don't use ! I use my D: drive
for saving files and backing up as you would understand
it's alot safe in case of windows crashing ext ext ...

Anyway, When i delete the pic's, music, and other folders in my doc's folder they always return either
after a reboot or after several reboots ?

It's not taking up much space i know this but it's
really annoying cos i have to delete them all the time ...

Does anyone know of a way of making them stay Deleted ?!?

normally as far as i know you cannot delete the "my documents folders as they are protected by the system and will be restored upon restart as you have found.

you may want to try(at your own risk)

"Click Start, then Run and type: regsvr32 /u mydocs.dll You can then delete the MyDocuments folder/sub-folders like EBooks" taken from click here

or you could move it to another location maybe click here

i have not tried either so cannot comment as to if this does or does not work or cause problems.i would just leave it and right click the taskbar/properties/start menu/customize/advanced and tick "dont display this item" for the folders in question maybe.
