You can do it, but it is dangerous to do it on default junctions. The system will become unstable.

For more information;

Link Shell Extension

Quite right, in fact it should not have been posted here at all! I seem to have posted it to the completely wrong place!

Anyway, I will leave it up now, as the software and various explanations may be of interest.

The original question was whether it was possible to delete junctions in Windows 7.
