Thanks very much for the discussion about removing unwanted folder-views from Windows 7 explorer.exe via reg edits. I've cleaned up my Nav pane quite a bit and am much happier.

There is one remaining entry I would like to know if it's possible to get rid of: I am currently logged into Windows 7 as Administrator. At the top of the Navigation pane (I.e. the first entry), immediately under Desktop, is "Administrator." I assume it's the profile directory showing me which login is active. Is there any way to hide that entry?

A screenshot would be nice. – Moab Apr 23 '11 at 20:02

Is this in the Favorites section of the nav pane? In that case, just right click on the link and click Remove.
