How to remove links in favorites IE6

  mik61ish 23:20 24 Jan 05

I keep getting links folders in IE6 Favorites, I have tried renaming and deleting, but they still come back. When you reboot. So how do you delete these unwanted link folders, they seem to apear out of no where

Sorry but I don't understand. Perhaps if you could give an example...

Also, which versions of Internet Explorer and Windows?

Maybe deleting them direct from the favorites folder in your user accout?.

When you have IE6 open in XP you press favorites then the drop down list appears, you have all your favorites saved then you have links folder which is empty, I have tried deleting, online and ofline and as soon as you reboot they appear again!!

Must be something internet explorer tools? I have looked but can't find anything.

I think then, windows must put it there by default maybe....TT

This doesn't apply to XP, it isn't there in TweakUI....TT

THE TERMINATOR, it also gives manual and auto reg fixes, as well as info on how to hide the folder by the file attributes option?
