I upgraded to IE7 last week and I'm sorry I did. Maybe I just resist change but I'm haviinga hard time getting used to it. I had to open help to find the 'refresh' button!!

Anyway, I can't seem to delete the default favorites, the ones that Microsoft wants you to have, the MSN sites, and microsoft sites etc... Is there a way to delete them? I hate being held hostage by microsoft!!

Also, is there a way to uninstall IE7 and reinstall IE6?

Thanks in advance!

To delete those pesky favorites Microsoft insists on including:

Open Favorites by clicking on the star icon on the upper left side of the toolbar.
RIGHT click on the item to highlight it. A menu box opens, choose DELETE.

OR from the toolbar Click on Favorites to open. Choose Organize.
Left click or right click on the item, choose delete.

As for reverting back to IE6, all you have to do in uninstall IE7.

I'm curious, just what is it about IE7 that you don't like?
