Permanently Remove My Document Sub Folders

Hey all

Need some minor help here. I have 2 HDD on my pc where C drive is the system drive and D is Media where I have my music and video files. The sub folders in My Documents on C (My Videos, My Miusic, Favorites, Searches, & Saved Games) keep reappearing no matter how many times I delete them. I don't need or want these folders. I have customised start menu and managed to rid myself of Saved Games but the rest keep reappearing. How can I permanently remove them?

Any help appreciated.

These are system folders and you should not delete them, although you can hide them if you wish.
