Does anyone know of a utility or reg tweak that will hide or remove the "Shared Documents" folder in the 'My Computer' Explorer window? As far as I'm concerned it's redundant since I only have one user account on my PC so sharing files is not a feature I need. It's annoying to see it everytime I open My Computer window.

TweakUI doesn't seem to have the option to hide it, and changing it's attribute to 'hidden' doesn't hide it even when "View hidden files and folders" is disabled. But a utility or tweak that would really hide or remove it is what I'm looking for. TIA - Phillip
