Just discovered this, as I've been plagued with this damn "Links" folder for
years now.  If you go into the Favorites folder, right-click on the Links
folder, then check off the boxes marking it Hidden AND Read-Only (so it
doesn't get re-created or anything).  Voila!  I can't pinpoint what
application makes this folder reappear consistantly, but this is a surefire
way to kill it.

BTW I discovered this myself so if someone else has already covered it or
published something about it, my apologies in advance.
