Keep losing IE Favourites

Running Windows XP and therefore IE8.

Currently installed, up-to-date and recently run:~ AVG Free, CCleaner, Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D and SuperAntiSpyware.

Any ideas welcome.

My guess would be Ccleaner is removing them as part of its process. Have you checked the IE 'Cleaner' list and the 'Options' settings to see what is included/excluded? The various updates change items in the selections.

No John, it's not that. I have been using CCleaner for years and this problem has only just arisen.

Interestingly, it's only the occasional item from my IE Favourites List, not several at a time or not that I have noticed.
