Pesky IE & MSN Favorites Keep Coming Back

Post by jasarthur » Mon Nov 23, 2009 12:47 am

I keep deleting the dozen or so IE and MSN favorites that appear to be default bookmarks in MSIE 8, but they keep reinstalling themselves! I removed the MSN toolbar application and it didn't help. Unfortunately, Avant (41) imports them automatically. I have NO boxes checked under IE add-ons in Tools.

P.S.: Does anyone know why search terms entered in the search field get attached to the URL?

(i)Are the favourites in a specific folder? Does it happen if you log into XP as a different user?

(ii)What do you have set in Tools >> Avant Browser Options... >> Search Engine >> Standard Search >> Web
