    This will delete the Libraries aka bibleoteques directory from explorer.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}]

    Supposedly this will restore libraries if you want them back, but I haven't wanted them back (untested by me)

    You easily hide the Favorites section just like in Vista, Grab the divider (above Bureau) and you can pull the folder explorer upwards and hide Favorites

    OK, so all we need is find a way delete User Profile directory. Anyone seen a reg for that ?

    I don't mind the ones at the bottom because they don't get in the way, and are kinda useful once in a while.

    User Home = {59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}

    I think that's what I was look for, thanks.. If any do test removing user directory, please post back if it worked

    Code:
    Favorites     = {323CA680-C24D-4099-B94D-446DD2D7249E}
    Libraries     = {031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}
    Homegroup     = {B4FB3F98-C1EA-428d-A78A-D1F5659CBA93}
    User Home     = {59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}
    Computer      = {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    Network       = {F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}
    Control Panel = {26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683}
    Recycle Bin   = {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    
    Maybe by the weekend I find time to edit User Home guid into the first reg and test on vmware. Don't try on you machine without back up first with regedit. But it prolly should work.

    I found that "Shift" + Mouse "Right Click" can delete them, but this will also delete them from the desktop, so it's not the best solution.
