    Hijacked favorites (IE 6 SP2)

    My son recently started playing on line games and downloaded a lot of software. Of the many things that has happened, my favorties has been hijacked. Now on top are 6 folders and 5 sites. When I right-click on these instead of getting the usual menu, all I get is "close toolbar" which closes favorites. When I click on Add or organize, they don't show up so it is not possible to delete them. I have used Microsoft Antispyware beta and spybot search and destroy with no luck. I don't want to lose my Favorites bar, it took a long time to create it.
    Thanks in advance

    Craig,

    Also check out <post#=296,439>post 296,439</post#> from KenK and others in the thread.

    Do you have an anti-virus program installed and updated?
    Firewall?

    Besides SpyBot S&D try Adaware and Sptware Blaster mentioned in that thread.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
