Good question. I am also annoyed by the Favorites and would like to only leave Computer and Network there, so if anyone can answer inclusively of disabling those, that would be awesome! – Itai Nov 1 '11 at 4:14
Favorites are the way to go. I guess some people still prefer multiple click vs doing things the easy way. . . – surfasb Nov 1 '11 at 14:08

You can use the scripts from here. Its simple registry scripts, that either disable Libraries in Windows 7, or only remove Libraries icon from Windows 7 Explorer, or restore to default settings.

Tested on my machine and it works fine.

I tried your scripts in the answer, it removes both Library and User. Cheers. – Nam G VU Nov 2 '11 at 3:41
