I am using Windows XP Professional SP3, 32-bit, with Internet Explorer 8.
I noticed that frequently a Suggested Sites icon appears in the Favorites Bar and I have been unable to permanently get rid of it...
Things I have tried:
1) Right-clicked the Suggested Sites icon in the Favorites Bar and deleted it many times. It keeps on coming back!
2) Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced tab -> Browsing section: Unchecked "Enable Suggested Sites". It keeps on coming back!
3) Went to C:\Documents and Settings\<user_name>\Favorites\Links and deleted Suggested Sites many times. It keeps on coming back!
4) Clicked on the Search box (top right-hand corner), selected Manage Search Providers, and then selected Disable Suggestions. It keeps on
What else can I try to permanently get rid of it, short of using another browser like Firefox or Google Chrome??
