No matter how many times i delete "My Downloads" from my documents folder it just keep re-appearing.
I was wondering if theres any kinda of tweak or registry edit i could do to get rid of it once and for all?

"My Downloads" is not a default "My" folder, it is user created. Windows should not replace it when you delete it. Therefore, you must have a program that uses it (other than Windows, such as AIM, MSNM, or other IM programs) and that's why it's being replaced.

I know that iMesh forces a folder called "My Downloads" it the folder you specify, if it is iMesh simply change the directory from within imesh.

Actually, the default AIM download directory is "filelib" stored in the my documents folder.
