You're not supposed to 'delete' them, they are built-in, protected by WFP and therefore reside in those locations for a reason.

You need to disable SFC (nLite has an option to do so). Then you can remove them, and you can move the Admin Tools menu as well.

I'm copying my shortcuts in the start menu the following way:

XCOPY "%AllUsersProfile%\STARTM~1\Programme\Mozilla Thunderbird\Mozilla Thunderbird.lnk" "%AllUsersProfile%\STARTM~1\Programme\Internet\E-Mail Client"
