    How did you "move" your bookmarks to IE? If you open the Favorites in IE (The Star icon in the upper, right of the Window) Choose the drop down arrow next to Add To Favorites. Choose Organize Favorites. In the Window that opens you can choose the Favorites (Bookmarks are called Favorites in IE) and choose the Delete button.

    The general way is to right click the favorite you wish to delete and simply choose delete.

    The Favorites location in Windows Explorer is located at C:, User, UserName. Perhaps you can open this favorites folder and delete them there.

    Is there a reason you have to delete the Favorites?

    I have heard about this app. I do not believe I ever had to use it. I have no idea why the favorites will not uninstall. Something went wrong during the export/import routine.

    I have already mentioned all the methods I have used to delete Favorites. Favorites are not an app, so do not need to be uninstalled.

    What happens when you try to delete favorites in c:\users\username? Do you get an error message?
