    I wonder if you can help me with a problem I have please? Usually when I delete all offline content and cookies all the saved website addresses in my homepage are deleted also. This evening, when I deleted the offline content and cookies the saved addresses were still there and when I reloaded the Orange homepage and checked the settings to see if all the files were deleted, they were all still there. This has concerned me as I know to avoid spyware problems I must be able to delete offline content and cookies. Can you advise please

    Many thanks
