Unwanted web addresses

There was a recent thread about the problem that I have but I am unable to locate the answer to the thread. The problem is that I when I open the drop down list of home page addresses in Internet Options/General I have some unwanted addresses. Some I can delete by highlighting them and then pressing the delete button, others I can?t. How do I get rid of these addresses. They do not clear when I remove cookies or clear temporary internet files. They are of minor inconvenience but I am intrigued as to why some can be removed and others not.

Try click here

Back up your cookies first if you want to keep them - in IE File/Import and Export.

If that doesn't work try removing the Index.dat file with Supercleaner click here
