Microsoft IE Redundancy

I can understand why Microsoft may want to set up some default links and folders in Internet Explorer--just basic default settings for a new installation. But doesn't a folder called "links" in the bookmarks menu seem overly redundant?


And it won't go away either. When deleted, the "links" folder is restored every time!

Gatzby...yeah, that drives me nuts. When I remove something from my computer, I expect it to be removed :-)

If memory serves me correctly, you can get rid of it permanently, but it involves a registry hack. Also, updates will bring it back.

Aren't they the links that appear in the links toolbar (if you have one)? Maybe it'd be better if they called it links toolbar links or something like that

Using Firefox solves that and many other problems.
