Windows 7: How do I delete ALL Favorites in Internet Explorer 9

This also happened with IE8 I remember. Sometimes a reinstall would fix it, sometimes not. If you don't have your system set to show hidden folders, you could just set the folders attributes to hidden.

Right click the folder> Properties> General tab> Check the hidden box under attributes

Right click the folder again> Rename> Rename to anything else

This worked so far. It's not there under Favorites. I guess it's still there, I just can't see it. It still shows in Explorer. I renamed it "Not Favorites". Just as an experiment I added a link to the Favorites Bar. It shows in "Not Favorites" in Explore, but not in IE. Thanks Guy.

Internet Explorer - favorites menu
I find with the upgrade from 7068 to 7077, my favorites bar often will have the icons for the different web pages to be an globe symbol for a second before it shows the website logos. Is anyone else having this issue? it is more of a bother than a show stopper, but one i want to go away FAST! :D
