best not to delete it because that's the folder that which will display all your webpages..

The www is just a redirection to the public_html directory. They have the same files.

Exactly. The www is a UNIX-style link to public_html, much like a Windows shortcut. If you delete public_html, then the www folder will also dissapear. They're linked together.

If you want to delete the folders such as _vti_cnf, _vti_pvt, etc. then disable FrontPage Extensions. This is what causes all those folders.
