    I've recntly had a few sites lock themselves into my Favorites and every time I delete them, when I reboot, they come back. I run Windows 98 and Office 2000 on an Hp pavillion.
    Any help?
    Thanks folks!

    You might do a search online for "Ad-Aware". Download it for free and run it. It finds spyware and other hidden crap on your machine that sites sometime give you without your consent. This sounds exactly like the prob you are experiencing. Ad-Aware is well-known and trustworthy, and it works.

    best regards

    Read the sticky at the top of this forum.
    Sounds like the obligatory spy ware in reinstalling itself
