I'm using windows 95 and internet explorer.yesterday lots of new links were added to my favourites folder without my permission.Every time i delete them from my favourites folder, the links just keep coming back and replacing the same ones i've just deleted.
Any idea's how i can stop this, and why is it doing this?
please help.

do you have spybot or adaware? If yes run them if not get them.

i've just run spoybot which corrected a few errors on the coolwwwsearch.But after i've restarted the pc all the unwanted favourites are back there again.it's also changing my start up page as well.

i did a check to see what files had been used accessed today when the favourites had been added. these files are - favico.dat, system.da0, user.da0, user.dat, system.dat.
any idea's at all? haven't a clue what to do now.
