How do delete unwanted favorites

  Nick Adcock 13:29 30 Oct 2006

I have picked up a virus I guess but I have run all the good spyware detectors and still have this problem. There are a bunch of sites and folders in my favorites which I cannot right click delete and I am getting po-ups. They are not salacious but just a pain. Does anybody know how to deal with it?

Have you tried the Delete button on the Organise Favourites option from the Favourites drop down menu?

and this should really be in the helproom. I'll move the thread there now.

Use Windows Explorer look for C: drive and then the Documents and Settings folder. In each of the sub-folders there is a folder called "Favorites". Look at each of these in turn to find the entries you want to remove and delete from the folder.
