I've created a Blank site -I then turned on the Publishing feature. As expected all sorts of new lists and document libraries were created along with it.
I've since deactivated the Publishing feature on the site, as it didn't turn out to be suitable for what we wanted - but the "system" libraries and lists that were created when I turned Publishing on, are still there - and I can't delete them manually.
They didn't automatically disappear when I deactivated the Publishing feature - so how do I get rid of them?
Thanks in advance

Thanks for your replies guys, but the point of my posting was that I CANNOT delete those pages or folders - whenever I attempt to do so from Sharepoint Designer I get an error messages stating that the folders contain "one or more lists, document libraries or galleries that your Web site requires in order to function correctly.." - but it clearly doesn't because the Publishing feature has been turned off?
Why wont it let me delete them?

Make sure there are no contents in any of those list of libraries, then try couple of options to delete them.
1) go to List -> Settings and then select delete this list
2) Or go to Site Actions ->Manage content and structure and then delete it from there.

Followed OttawaTechGuy and it works like a charm. Check if you have the right to delete it (security).
Worked like a charm for me.
