    hi!
    i need help!
    since a few weeks ago, when I go to internet it starts properly, however if i click in favourites, it appears 8 or 9 folders which I have not created. some of them are called "cool stuff", "Travel", "Internet", "Computers" or "online gaming". Inside them, there are a lot of webs which I have not seen before. the problem is when i go to organize favourites to delete these folders. They do not appear there and there is no way for delete them!!!
    If someone has a solution of this problem please let me know it.
    Thanks for your attention.

    Hello,
    There is a chance that your pc is infected.
    Do you know how to perform scans with security software, if any?
    Mrk
