I'm using XP and I'm desperate. The subfolders under My Documents, how do I keep them from respawning. It seems as though almost every time I install a new app it creates a new one! I've tried everything I can think of with no results. Other than frustrating ones.

Is there a way to delete the f@#ckers once and for all! Please e-mail me! rtravers@resitek.com

Thanks in advance.

P.S. This is a first time post to this service. If I sound twitchy or uncooth, I apologize.

There are tools to change these paths and you could get them changed to the %USERROOT/MY Documents folder or something similar.
Does TweakUI do that?

The folder that keep respawning are as follows:

Adobe
Corel User Files
My DVDs
My eBooks
My Music
My Pictures
My PSP8 Files (?)
My Videos
NeroVision

Some of those are being created by your applicaiton program installs. Selecting advanced install instead of standard may let you keep some of them from re-appearing.

Corel User Files

NeroVision

Some are part of windows. The windows ones can all be changed to dump your stuff into the My-Documents root like Punk said. I'll go look for a utility to change these with.
My eBooks
My Music
My Pictures

Not sure on these:
My DVDs
My Videos
