    Hi abseh1!

    The LinksFolderName is actually the folder that saves all the links in Favorites that is found on the menu bar (toolbar) in Internet Explorer that gives you a list of frequently visited "Links" in Favorites.

    The default registry key is:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar]
    "LinksFolderName"="Links"

    Hope this helps.

    Red X? Did the Detective target it in the red? I've noticed that if you paste any log into the Detective that has that entry it does suggest that it should be removed.

    I'll look around for more info out of curiosity.
