Why would you want to hide the folders? If they're just folders in your home directory then just add a . to the folder name as anything starting with a dot is hidden...but do NOT rename anything like /usr /lib /include etc...

Rather than just mention to the poster that they've double posted, why not click the "report this post to a moderator" and let us know?

Anyway, this thread has been reported, please do not answer it further.
