I use WinXP Pro with IEv7 on my laptop. Worked fine until a few days ago when .URL showed up on each and every favorite website I had saved. I used Spybot, Malwarebytes and my computer is protected with AVG and Ad-Aware. Clicking on the favorites link does absolutely nothing. Any thoughts would be greatly apprieciated. Thanks, Gramma Jean
