Could you please remove the "Files" below Videos and Music on the mainscreen, like you did with "add-on" ??

I have looked at the .xml-file but cant edit it.

Thanks for the help

I've updated IncludesHomeMenuItems.xml on http://swarchive.ratsauce.co.uk/xbmc/ to remove the Files options.

Thanks so much jhsrennie for all the help.
Now i got a simple, nice and clean xbmc.

I use "Confluence skin".
-Turned off the navigation sound.
-Turned off "RSS News Feeds".
-Turned off "Add Source-button in file lists", after first adding my internal hdd as source.
-Hide Programs.
-Hide Weather.
-Hide Weather Info.
-Removed "Files" and "Add-ons" in main-menu that shows under videos and music and "Favourite-icon" left of the power-button.
Replaced the Home.xml and IncludesHomeMenuItems.xml-files in xbmc-addons-skin.confluence-720p,
with the ones jhsrennie edited.
-Removed "Add-ons-button" that shows in music, videos and pictures menu, like this:
Press Windows-R and in the Run dialog type:
notepad "%APPDATA%\XBMC\userdata\advancedsettings.xml"
click OK and when Notepad prompts you to create a new file, answer "Yes".
Now copy and paste the following into Notepad:

<advancedsettings>
<virtualshares>false</virtualshares>
</advancedsettings>

Close Notepad and save the changes.
Now run XBMC and you should find the "Add-ons" link has gone.

Thanks

Cool, I'm glad you have everything looking the way you want. Note that if an update to the Confluence skin is released it will overwrite the changes to the skin files, so you should keep a copy of Home.xml and IncludesHomeMenuItems.xml somewhere safe.
