Search and Deleted Items folders in Outlook 2010 pst files

Is is possible to either delete or hide the "search folders" and "deleted iems" folders that appear in each pst file created in Outlook 2010 / windows 7?  

The big bosses are complaining that they are taking up  viewing space in each folder.

In searching i can't seem to find anyway of doing it.   But I was hoping someone on here may have a creative way of accomplishing this task.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

These are system default folder items in a Personal Folder

There is no way to remove them, nor is there any way to hide them.

"complaining that they are taking up  viewing space in each folder", Now thats funny!
