    Permanently delete Special folder

    I keep deleting the Special folders 'My eBooks' and 'My Albums' that Windows has under 'My Documents'. I delete them, and then a few days or so later they turn up again. I don't use them, I don't want them; they are useless clutter that I want to make go away forever. What keeps bringing them back? Is there any hack to make Windows stop re-creating these folders?

    My eBooks is created by Adobe Reader: See here how to get rid of it.
    I don't know which application creates My Albums (not Windows, AFAIK)
