Remove Public folders?

I wish I had not installed Windows 7. There are too many things I have no use for. The libraries and public user are two examples. I have managed to rid Windows Explorer of the Libraries. Now I would like to know how to delete the Public user account. I have tried deleting the folders inside, but some of them keep reappearing. The same with the main Public user folder. Please help.
