Internet "Favorites" verify utility

by stanvk / March 13, 2009 12:50 PM PDT

I have looked many times for a utility to verify my Internet shortcuts (Favorites). I have hundreds and many are likely no good any more. But rather than go through them one at a time, clicking, and verifying a good response, it would be great to run a utiliy that verifies each site as found or not. And if not, output a list of what I named the shortcut, its folder, and the URL. So I can check out only the defective ones. This would not catch reused URLs, but I need something to complain about! (grin).
So anyone out there know of a solution?

AM-Deadlink is just such an application, which is both free of charge and supportive of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and others.

Hope this helps,

Ah ha, will try it. Did not know what to search for and spent a lot of time looking at irrelevent info, so thanks a lot.
