I have my folders set to 'Show Hidden and System Files.' This technique does not work for me.

I feel I should shed some light on this problem and give you the REAL solution to the problem. We will not be hiding it, we will be deleting it for good. You will need to go to Start/Run and type "regedit" without the quotes. Next go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar". You will see an entry called "LinksFolderName", edit this from "Links" to blank by double clicking on the item and deleting text that says "Links". Now, you delete the Links folder through Internet Explorer and it will NOT be recreated when you restart windows. Hope that helps.
