Every time I restart my computer, IE8 keeps adding the folders "Microsoft Websites" and "Favorites Bar."

Ages ago, if you deleted these pre-installed ones, they didn't come back unless you reinstalled the browser... if I remember right. (Been using Opera for so long.)

I just thought I'd try IE8 out, and it's... not bad... but it's also little things like this that I need/want to cure to keep it around.

Open up My Computer from your desktop.
Click on Drive C/Documents and Settings/your user name.
Go into the Favorites folder and delete from there.
You can also check in All Users/Favorites and if it's there, also delete.

I feel like that should have been painfully obvious. >_<

Thank you, though.
