Windows 7: Looking For a Favorites Cleaner

Looking For a Favorites Cleaner

I have accumulated thousands of IE favorites over the years, and some of them are dead links. Is there a program available that will clean up my favorites list? Thanks.

Maybe this will work for you. I haven't used it myself but check it out, maybe what you are looking for.

Here the answer to your problem:
If you are using Internet Explorer (IE) 8.0+:

Go to 'Tools' in the menu bar which should drop down then click on 'Internet Options'
Click on 'Privacy' Tab on top
Click on 'Sites' a new window should open called 'Per Site Privacy Actions'
Type in the URL of the site you wish to allow or block cookie in the 'Address of website' box

To delete existing cookies:

Go to 'Tools' in the menu bar which should drop down then click on 'Internet Options'
Click on 'Privacy' Tab on top
Click on 'Sites' a new window should open called 'Per Site Privacy Actions'
Under the "Managed websites' box should be a list of all the websites you have visited.
To remove all cookies simply click on the "Remove all" button.

Also, download and run CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
I don't see how that's the answer. I said I wanted to remove the dead links in my IE favorites list, not remove cookies.

I apologize again for the incorrect resolution.

I know how to delete bookmarks individually. I've been working with computers for 23 years, so I'm not computer illiterate. As I said, I have thousands of bookmarks, so deleting dead links one at a time is NOT an option.

That's one hell of a program. It removed all of the dead links in my favorites and duplicate links, as well.
