how do i delete files and folders stored on this computer in XP?

This reg setting deletes the " files and folders stored on this computer" icons shown at the top of Windows explorer / my computer screens in XP. These icons can provide a security concern on shared computers with users being able to see each others files. To remove :

open the registry editor:

[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\

In the left pane, delete the sub-key {59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}

Exit Registry and Reboot
