    This is dead simple really even though most people say it can't be deleted.
    Start you computer in safe mode and log on as administrator if prompted.
    Go to my computer>local disk>users
    Right click public and delete.
    In the left pane left click on documents library.
    Where it says 2 locations left click and delete the public folder and close.
    Follow the last 2 steps for each folder in libraries.
    Job done.
    Restart your computer.
