"Links" folder , how to get rid of it ?

It´s useless to delete it from favorites menu , every time the sistem is booted , the Links folder is recreated ;
Is there a way to get rid of it :?:

(perhaps to edit an entry in the register ?)

Cheers

you can't delete it. it is incorporated into IE. You have to go to the properties by right clicking the links folder and clicking hidden to make it go away, but still remain latent.

REGEDIT REMOVE-->

Using the Registry - Start/Run/Regedit

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

Set the String value of "LinksFolderName" to equal a blank string. Open IE and delete the Links folder from the Favorites menu. The next time you start Internet Explorer the Links folder will not be recreated.
