Windows 7: Contacts, Downloads, Favorites... libraries/folders won't stay deleted

Contacts, Downloads, Favorites... libraries/folders won't stay deleted

So I know I solved this problem once but while I've been away from the site these past couple months, it's come back. I've apparently forgotten how to deal with it, and I can't seem to find any other helpful posts. Speaking of helpful posts, I'm posting this under "Customization" in the hopes that no one will try to just yell at me to play with the libraries Microsoft worked so hard to get for me-- I don't want them.

You know the drill. I've deleted:
Contacts
Downloads
Favorites
Music
Pictures
Searches
Videos
(Desktop & My Documents I know to keep)
...and they keep coming back. These are the library things I'm talking about. I've already hidden the library part in the nav pane, and set up my own folders on my data d:/ drive with my own names, and created symlinks to get to them through my user account name.

How do you keep them deleted again???
