My son says open the favorites then rightclick on the favorites bar,Then click on properties.UN check read only and put a check in hide.Click apply then click this folder only.He says you also have to go into your favorites folder in my documents and also and do the same.He said to make sure you empty your recycle bin.and restart.I had to do this two or 3 times but I got rid of the favorite bar in XP and vista and 7

Suggested Sites keeps appearing on Favorites Bar
I keep deleteing Suggested Sites, and they keep reappearing. I went to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and unchecked "enable suggested sites" but they still keep coming back.

Favorites menu
