Help with an Internet "NonFavorite

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if any of you could help me. From time to time a "favorite" will show up in Internet Explorer 6 that is called "Links" :angry: , it is empty so I will delete it. Then some time will pass and it shows up again. :angry: I have run all the spyware programs available, none of them find anything. I have run CCleaner, it still comes back. None of my other settings in Internet Explorer are changed, not the home page, etc. It is really weird. I am using:

 

Windows XP home sp1 -- French version

Internet Explorer 6 (please don't tell me to switch, that is not the solution, even if you think another navigator is better :) )

All updates have been made and are up to date.

 

Thanks & have a good day,

Normandie

Bonjour,

 

first off, firefox is way better than IE, but now that i've said it, here goes with your question. the links folder reappearing is not spyware or a virus, thats why none of your scans will reveal anthing. if you delete it from all locations and it still comes back then it is likely a windows protected file, probably read only and such. I can't remember how to get rid of it, someone else on here is likely going to post your solution, just know that its likely not very serious.

If you are running XP sp1 then "all updates" are not "made."

bpm3k,

 

I am sorry if you misunderstood my statement, sometimes my English is not that good. For me since I prefer to stay with SP1 which, Microsoft still considers to be current and puts out updates for that version, does not mean that I am not up to date with my software. Just because I don't want to go to SP2 does not mean what I have is not up to date. As long as Microsoft is supporting and putting out updates for any particular version I consider that to be up to date.

 

I am just sorry that you spend time looking for small errors in people's statements and not more time in helping them. As I have understood from those that answered and tried to help, that even with SP2 the "favorite" "Links" would come back, therefore being with SP2 would not help.

 

Have a good day,

Normandie :)

:) Just found a work around! I just got tired of the "Links" favorite showing up so I right clicked on it and marked it hidden. I know it is still there, but I don't have to see it. Sounds dumb, but it works. :P

 

Have a good day,

Normandie

 

I don't know if this will keep it invisable or if it will come back, but it is worth a try.
