internet favorites help

A couple of days ago several folders and web addresses appeared on my favorite lists but unlike the ones i have put in these cannot be deleated. When i go into the organise section they do not show up. How do I remove them ? My kids may have had somthing to do with it but they say not.

Have you downloaded Messenger + plus lately.Sounds a bit like to update all your Anti-virus and spyware programs.And run them see what you pick up,If you would like to try this. click here Dont download the full program, Just download the full scan,Takes about 40 min,Anything on there this should pick it up, And if you want to download the full program later,Its free for 3 months.

Dont know what Anti-virus + Spyware programs you have.You could try this one ,click here This is free, Full scan takes about an hour,But try the one care first,Then you might not need to run this one.

If You have msn messenger on your computer, The kids have probably added ,I think its called MSN + Plus Or MSN +3.Unfortunately if not downloaded properly,You get the makers bundle of crap with it, Normally known as Lop.Com.If you do have it on your computer, You will see it on Add Remove.Be carefull how you remove it,As you can end up with a currupt file,I Think you can get a remove file from Msn.

Thanks all.
I ran the onecare package and it didnt find anything. I have also uninstalled the messenger plus but the folders are still there and cannot be deleated.

Which browser are you using, is it IE6 and can you give more information on the type of favorites added?

Well does not look as though it is Or One Care would have found it,If you have to reinstall the messenger plus,Make sure that you dont install the makers package with it,Will leave you with Anskyer,Who has a wide range of knowledge reguarding computer problems, Good luck.

How do i find out what browser is used ??
The folders that wont go are
cool stuff,on line gaming, travel and a fewe more like that. Also getting a lot of on line dating popping up even with anti pop up on.
All fairly harmless, a few viagra type things etc.

Must admit,Sounds like,But I thought One care would have picked it up.
