Thread: Links keep gettin added to my IE Favorites

  1. #1
    I recently imported all my Firefox favorites to Internet Explorer. Everything worked fine. But now, I keep gettin this folder called "Links" being added to my IE favorites. Its an empty folder with no links. When I delete it, it reappears when I reopen IE. What can I do to fix this lil bug?

    no it's not spyware that's a folder microsoft put there and you can't delete.

    just right click it>properties>click "hidden">apply the settings and it's "gone"

    The links folder contains the 'favorites' that are displayed in the links bar in IE, which you can also add to your desktop.
    Use it for those frequently visited sites such as filesharingtalk, rotten, steakandcheese, google etc.
