You mean Windows Explorer favourite places, or IE8 recently typed or visited urls?

I will assume you mean the IE favorites,that you visit often. Click on favorites. Then right click on the one that you want to delete, then click on delete.

If you want to delete your browsing history, go tools>internet options>delete browsing history.

Tools>delete browsing history
