I prefer to use my own folders and icons for pictures and music. WindowsXP continues to generate its own "My Music" and "My Pictures" folders. When I try to click on and/or delete these unwanted folders, I get a blue screen. Items on my tool bar disappear at the same time (although re-boot brings them back). I have done repeated checks for viruses. All is well there. So what can cause this?

How do I safely delete WindowsXP generated folders?

I don't understand your response ... do you mean that you CAN'T safely delete the 'My Documents,' 'My Pictures,' 'My eBooks' or 'My Received Files' folders?
