I'd do that first.

I don't know if theis is a PC application problem or a Windows XP problem, but I am hoping someone can help me. I was saving a genealogy website link into ''My Favorites'', and I suddenly had an enormous list ... it appears to be everything that is typically in the WINDOWS folder in the C: drive, plus a lot of KB######.log files.
The WINDOWS files are still where they are supposed to be (according to Windows Explorer), but how did they get into ''My Favorites''? The main problem is that I am unable to get them out. It keeps telling me that these files are ''access: denied''. So I can't move them, I can't delete them, and I can't get rid of it all. Plus, the organized folders that were in ''My Favorites'' are no longer there ... they are listed under ''My Documents''. Can anyone tell me what happened and how to fix it?
I am using a Dell Dimension 4600i with Windows XP ... if more system information is needed, please let me know ... I am not exactly computer literate, but can usually follow technical directions if given in a layperson's terms. Thanks ...
