I tried your solution but that doesn't seem to do it. What I did right now is in Searches, I removed "Recently Changed". And then from the favorites sidebar, I also removed Recently Changed. When the folder Recently Changed is not in Searches, clicking Restore Defaults on the sidebar won't bring back that folder on the sidebar. But this is still not a good fix to the problem. When I search on my computer, I can still find all the files that are in the folder. Anyways, what I think I might do I see if I can use both xp and vista on the same machine, not sure if this is possible. Theres a bunch of programs on xp that arent compatible yet with vista that I still want to use, and at the same time I want to use vista for publishing.
