Do you have TweakUI installed? In it there is an option to remove both the Documents and Favorites from the start menu

To install the TweakUI tool on your Windows 98-based computer, follow these steps:
1.Insert your Windows 98 CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive, and close the Welcome screen if it appears.
2.Right-click the Tweakui.inf file in the Tools\Reskit\Powertoy folder, and then click Install.
3.Follow the instructions on your screen to install the TweakUI tool.

NOTE: To use the TweakUI tool, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click TweakUI.

Once TweakUI is installed , open it and go to the IE4 tab, find the "Show Documents on start menu" and Show Favorites on start menu" and uncheck them to remove them from the menu, to replace them simply recheck them
