    No, actually all I did was import favorites from google chrome. It did not give an option to import from ms edge, or firefox. Anyway I was checking each folder to make sure all my links were there, when I got to Govt & Med folder it would not open, so that's when I tried to delete it so I could recreate it.

    Odd. You might see if completely resetting Internet Explorer, and importing your favorites again afterwards may work this time around.

    Reset selecting option to delete personal settings. Restarted and the SOB is still there. It's almost 7 pm NY time, gotta give the rest of the evening to the wifey. Will try again tomorrow.

    Ok. Let's try deleting the folder from an elevated command prompt using the command below. It's a command to delete the Favorites Bar folder (aka: "Links").

    RD /S /Q "C:\Users\Hewjr\Favorites\Links"
