Vuze DVDs is folder created by Vuze. If you don't want that folder,delete Vuze.
Transcodes its also folder created by Vuze. Read more here

I simply create a FILE with the exact same name as the folder (including any extension if the folder is made with one.)

Putting a FILE with the name "\System Volume Information" onto Removable drives even stops Windows XP from putting Restore Points on them.

On W7 System Restore is fully off - I use Macrium for guaranteed restoration.

In what way was mine improper ?

Do you not recognise that although creating a file "Vuze DVDs" will not happen WHILST a folder with that name exists, you only have to REMOVE the folder to enable creation of a file with that name, and your application will no longer be able to create that folder
