Windows 7: Removing Libraries from Windows Explorer

Removing Libraries from Windows Explorer

Hello!

I've read the tutorials on hiding Libraries (and other folders) in W. Explorer. Is there a program that would edit the Windows registry and do that for me so that I don't have to do it manually? A little tweaking program?

Thank you.

I use it, never had a problem. I would not post anything here which caused problems.

I tried that tool and it didn't work (was unable to remove my user folder etc.), but no matter, I did it manually then (as seen in the tutorials).

The tool does not remove anything, it merely hides things.

I have never known it not to work, but there is a first time for everything!

Doing these things manually, once you know how to do it, is probably best, as you then know exactly what you have done.
