    search for and highlight the Links Folder and click the Delete button.

    Hi,
    As you've probably discovered, Windows will keep recreating the Links
    folder. I find the Links folder/button to be very useful, but the easy, safe
    way of getting rid of it is to browse to (probably)
    [C:\WINDOWS\Favorites\Links] Right-click the Links folder> Properties>
    select the Hidden attribute.

    There are other methods at http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_favorites.htm.
    Scroll down to "Removing the Links Folder."

    Hope this helps,
    Don

    In that case, you could use TweakUI which has an option in the IE tab to
    Show (or not show) Links on the Favorite menu

    You can download TweakUI from Microsoft at :-
    http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/powertoys/networking/nttweakui.asp

    Following warnings/notes reproduced with acknowledgement to Koldbear

    1) Do *not* change the first icon from "My Documents" on the Desktop tab
    2) Do *not* uncheck: Search Results on the Desktop tab
    3) Do *not* hide the Tweak UI icon on the Control Panel tab
    4) Do *not* uncheck: Show Control Panel on Start Menu on the IE tab
    5) Do *not* uncheck: Shell enhancements on the IE tab
    6) To move "My Documents" folder, right-click on the Folder, and click
    Properties.
