    All You IT people...

    ah need ur help for a bit. What do you do if your favourites folder is infected? That is i can't access any links in the folder and i can't add em either? I really need to get this solved for a person who's accustomed to going to favourites and clicking the links to get to the page

    First try to run a window update,,,see if that fixes it

    or

    Seems like you may need to rename your favorites in documents and settings and restart your pc to get a fresh favorites folder.

    ur fav folder is just a folder with all the sites u like visit that u saved so all can't be infected. maybe one or two in there might be spyware....

    do a details view and delete the ones u do not recognise...or just run adaware or spybot

    you can't access any links in the folder, but can you open the folder? BTW, how many links are in there?
