Favorites won't delete.

Just a simple thing-but it's annoying me!! When I have no further use for a 'favorite' in my MSN browser, I delete it as normal in organise favorites, but when I log in again - it's there once more. Tried lots of times but they still return to haunt me. I'm running Windows XP SP2 with all relevant updates installed. Has someone got the answer to this problem for me?

Favorites is a windows folder and cannot be deleted.

The same is on the top of Internet Explorer. If you remove it. you cna wind up disabling WINXP and Internet Explorer. It isn't useless.
You could remove the tires off a car and run on the rims, but that would also be foolish. Haunting you? you are scary to even think to remove it then you will really be haunted. DarCLew2

Thanks for your response but maybe I didn't make myself too clear. I don't want to delete 'favorites' completely, just odd links in the favorite folder.
As I said before, the links delete in 'organise favorites' as normal but return the next time I log in to MSN.
