Default Start Menu Folders

I have figured out how to change the start menu the way that I prefer, except there is one thing that I'm still confused on. I basically understood the various start menu locations in XP, all in Documents and settings, but W7 has a couple more locations that I'm not familiar with, under Program Data and Users.

When I copied some items from Program Data's Start Menu location, to the User's Start Menu location, it caused duplicate items to appear on the start menu. Since I'm the only person that will ever use this computer, I'm only interested in one start menu for whatever user that I'm logged in as. Which location should contain this menu...Program Data or Users? If I delete the items in Program Data, will that effect anything other than the start menu layout?
