Does someone know how to get rid of favorites in IE6. They have made thier way to the top of my list and I carnt delete them. They are just links to casinos/games/movies and useless spam. Im hoping someone else has had this problem and remembers how they resolved it.
I ran reg mech,spybot and ad-aware and it didn't solve the problem. Maybe in safe mode?

I also checked the IE homepage but couldn't see anything that would help.
Or should I just dump IE and go to firefox. Im sick of exploits! oh and I have xp.

1.) go to C:\Documents and Settings\*User*\Favorites

2.) Delete unwanted favorites

3.) Make file read-only

4.) If all else fails, bitch about it

It list all running programs and hooks into start-up and IE and stuff, just search around and you will be able to find site that explains what it all means. Its bloody great imo.

Yeah me too. I just had one and am suffering from lack of sleep for this almost over week. Which is what I blame for spelling Myst's name wrong. So I do feel your lack of time to do anything. However I will find the time to watch those 2 movies.
