Apart from telling your OS, can you be a little bit more clear.
- "Program" is Program Files folder, or Start>Programs list (in Windows 98) or Start>All programs list (in Windows XP) or still something else?
- Favorites = IE Favorites? That's an easy one: right click on it and choose remove.
- Documents = file in My Documents, or file (shortcut, in fact) in Recent Document list, or something on the Desktop or still something else?

It helps people here to help you if you make clear what you want. And what you told just wasn't clear enough.
