Hi, delete plugins like that is a bad idea (it is very hazardous). Two ways to deal with these plugins : #1 : customize the NetBeans User and Cache directories by modifying the "netbeans_default_userdir" and "netbeans_default_cachedir" keys in the "etc/netbeans.conf" file. It's a good way to centralize your user preferences data and make some backups. #2 : install the plugin called "Module manager". It will list all installed plugins and provide a way to enable, disable and uninstall what you want.

Jonathan, Thanks for the feedback. I agree on not wanting to delete the modules directly and will use Module manager for 'invisible' plugins.
