Definitely don't recommend deleting it.
I'm wanting to hide C:\Users\*username*\Favorites

And yeah, I figured that deleting it wasn't a good idea. :)

Okay. I was stupid. After marking it hidden, I hit refresh. The folder was still there, but upon closing and reopening Explorer it is now hidden! Hurrah!

Sounds like you have "show hidden folders/files" turned on. If so, you won't be able to hide it.

Edit: I see that you solved it.

The only thing "unrelated" here is your arrogance. You have a problem with the quality of answers from people who are volunteering their time to try to help? Go start your own board and then crap on all the volunteers of all experience levels who take the time to contribute.
