    Every time I start ICQ, a stupid "From ICQ" folder appears in my favorites menu. How do you disable this?

    Try going to preferences, then to Misc. and uncheck "show ICQ announcements". Don't know if that's it, but it's a try. I used to have it popup all the time and I hated it.

    And as for ICQ support, you can try, but I doubt they'll reply soon.

    I discovered the "Show announcements" box back when I was looking for my answer a while back. Sorry, but that's not it

    The fact of having "From ICQ" in my favorites is what made me want to delete ICQ from my pc.

    I'll admit that the "From ICQ" folder in my favorites does annoy me, and it won't go away! Hopefully someone knows of a way to disable it.

    Chicken: Click on the ICQ button, then goto Preferences. Then untick the checkbox "Show ICQ Announcements".
    Hope that helps!

    Ahhhhhh, James thank you... under Misc. I think I went looking for it, but got sidetracked when I saw everything else you could change. MUCH better!
