The mistake you made was to copy the folders across to the new Vista installation. Vista creates the user folders automatically, so what you should have done is only copy the 'contents' of those folders across to the corresponding folders in the new Vista partition.
I think you are now probably trying to delete the wrong pair of folders and that's why they keep re-appearing.

Make sure all your files are inside the yellow 'documents' and 'contacts' folders first (copy files across from the blue folders if necessary to give you a complete set of files in each yellow folder, with none missing), then see if the blue 'contacts' and 'documents' folders will delete.

i didnt install vista, so i dnt think i did that, i copied the folders vista created in my user to my new partition
i looked on the internet how to move my folders n well they said was only to copy them, n it worked
they work just fine, the only i dunno is why contacts n documents r 2 times,
the folders i was trying to delete r the yellow ones, cuz r the new, n have few files, instead the blue ones
have more things

what shall i do then ?
thx for ur help u r really kind :)
