Not long ago, I began having trouble deleting old or obsolete entries from my favorites list in MSN.

When I use the delete tool in the MSN "organize favorites" section, the item disappears, just as it should. but within a few hours the entry is restored somehow. I tried creating a new favorites folder titled "crap" with the idea of moving my no longer-favorites there and then deleting the folder. Of course not, too logical! Even before I could try deleting the Crap Folder, the unwanted favorites moved themselves back to their original folders. (Though I have been able to delete the empty Crap Folder.)

I am operating Win XP-SP2; MSN Premium 9.5; Norton Antivirus 2006, and Zone Alarm 7.0.
My Norton Antivirus is current and finds no viruses or other problems. Spybot Search & Destroy finds nothing but deletable cookies.

I guess the problem may be in some security setting, but I've been unable to identify which one.
Can anyone explain this? Can anyone tell me how to beat this? Thanks.

Its the really clever little mouse who finds where the yummy de-con is hidden.
