How can I do this?

Hi everybody, this is Archan.
My question to you that can I remove or disable the "new Folder" link from The explorer bar? If so, how?

Would you prefer a batch file that you could run to delete any that he has created?

I could probably knock one together for you if you like?

EDIT: - I quickly put two batches together for you. Don't feel obliged to use them if seekermeister's solution is a-ok. I just felt like practising, I don't want to get rusty after all!

The AUTO does not warn you about the deletion the CHOICE does. They work perfect on my machine; but it's always good practice to test them both from inside another folder first.

WARNING: They will delete all folders that begin with "New Folder" in the directory that the batch is run from (e.g. desktop). So if you use 'New folder' to store stuff in, it will all be deleted.
