If you find out please post it, for some time I have been deleting it on a regular basis. I have removed the entry from the registry but to no avail, it re-appears every time. It is not causing a problem but it is annoying to think that you have no control over what is displayed on your own computer.

I second that its not causing any great problem just annoying that i cant get rid of it.

I use AdAware when this happens because it tends to find all the places these things hide themselfs away in. I jjust disable it afterwards.

Hi
I have decided to ask this one again as nothing is happening. I tried ADAware, but after boot up hey presto the links folder is in my fav, again.
Anybody else any ideas?
thanx in advance.

This can be done with TweakUI, on the IE card there scroll down and untick 'Show links in favorites menu'
