I'm using msn as a isp. I can't delete one of my book marks in favorites. It reinstalls after I turn my pc off and reboot.I've deleted the book mark at least twenty times, only to have it show up a day later.???

   The book marks in Favorites are kept on your drive in different places.  I would suggest that you do a Search on your computer (go to Start and then to Search) for Favorites and look in the folders that it finds for that link.  When you find it, try deleting it.  If it still comes back, something is adding it back in.

   I assume that you are using Internet Explorer as your browser.  Other browsers may be different.
   I did a search for Favorites and found Favorites folders in the following places:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users
C:\Documents and Settings\Default Users   (star)
C:\Documents and Settings\{your user account}
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents
C:\Documents and Settings\{your user account}\Application Data   (star)
   The second and last location above have the folder icon shown as a star while the others are shown as a folder.  The star icons indicate that these are the actual contents of the Favorites items while the others are copies.
   Having said all of that, you should be able to delete the bookmarks from those locations (find them by right clicking on Start, selecting Explore from the popup menu, and finding the locations in Windows Explorer).

Well i couldn't reload my virus protection. I had to download AGV virus protection.I found out I could get spyblocker to block the book mark.So far the book mark hasn't  appeared on my favorites.

Well I found why I can't delete any of my favorite. Like I said my isp is msn and  Qwest is my dsl provider. It seems that msn has all my favorites on their machine, and their machine has a bug.
