My apologies for this thread, I don't like to "burden" my pc problems on to others as such but I'm at a loss (easily donesmiley - biggrin)

If I may Pastey, I'd like to ask you a question please, that you may possibly be able to help me with, to turn something off ? or guide me to somewhere where the answer might be. I have windows 7 pro on the pc and every now and again, it decides to put a "favourites" folder where my other folders - documents/music/video etc are.
I keep deleting it, but it comes back after a while ? smiley - grr Is there any way I can switch the bloody thing off permanently ?
I don't even want the "desktop" folder one that shows what err! desktop icons I have (stupid folder, I already know what icons I've got on the desktop) as I can see them.
(that removes the icons from the desktop if I delete it (I think ?)) as I daren't try it again.

I Thank you for any advice

D'you know, I've never thought to turn it off because I find it so useful smiley - biggrin

I'll have a quick look though and see if I can find out how.

I have a bloody big question to ask you Pastey please :- Now knowing that you are "going" from hootoo and of course I wish you well in your ventures (goes without saying) is it possible for you to send me via email though Lil or Dmitri ? a bit of the new guideml stuff ? so I can re-write my P/S and therefore NOT screw up hootoo. Co's after you gosmiley - sadfacewho would be "capable" of rectifying hootoo if I try to re-write it on me own ???

thanks mate

smiley - prof

I'm not "going" as such smiley - smiley I've just not got the time to actively spend developing. I'll still be around to fix things if you break them smiley - winkeye

What I would suggest though, is make a copy of your space first, and then each time you make a small change. That way, if something does go wrong, you can paste back in the last working version smiley - smiley
