I've got new HP Pavilion dv6, running windows 7 and recently downloaded MSN 8. (It hounded me.)

When I go in to delete old Favorites, Right-click and select "delete," I get a message saying that the file is open in another program. How could it be, day after day? Is it "open" because it's in the history? Having trouble deleting history in 7 also.

I'm sure I'm alone in this, but I believe that they "improve" their services in order to frustrate me.

Thanks

Hi,
Try deleting the files directly from the favorites folder C\docs & settings\YOUR USER NAME\Favorites

Delete the history - open ie go to the tools menu (top right) - Internet options - under browsing history, click delete

Hey, you know that simple computer stteing won't help you to delete the fiels. Get yourself a program, that will do it. like History Killer Pro will scan your PC and the you can erase particular files, selectively. ;)

The latest version of MSN is 10.0.552.0, you can download it from here:
http://membercenter.msn.com/download.aspx

Previous versions are not fully compatible with Windows 7.

Or did you mean IE 8 (Internet Explorer 8)? It's already part of Windows 7, unless you have a European version of Win 7 (Windows7-N) that did not come with Internet Explorer 8.

If it is IE 8, are you trying to delete from the Favorites Menu (ALT+A) or the Favorites Center (ALT+C)?
Or from the Favorites folder, located here:
C:\Users\<User Name>\Favorites
