Delete Internet Favorites

One of the handiest ways to manage the Windows Mobile registry entries is via PROVXML files. These files, when properly formed, can easily be inserted into an installable cab file and added to your SDAUTORUN.TXT file to be run as part of User Configuration.

Handling Internet Favorites.

One item that might be somewhat annoying when you flash a custom ROM is the existence of Internet Favorites that you dont particularly like. You can delete all of these Internet Favorites with the following PROVXML:

Code:
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<wap-provisioningdoc>
  <characteristic type="Registry">
    <nocharacteristic type="HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FavoritesEntries" />
  </characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
Save this PROVXML as a text file named _setup.xml.

Insert this into an installable cab file via windows MAKECAB.EXE.
Code:
 
C:\WORK\PROVXML>MAKECAB.EXE _setup.xml  reg_DeleteInternetFavs.cab
Now when you run that cab on your PPC, all of the Internet Favorites nested in the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FavoritesEntries registry location will be deleted.

Best regards,

Re: Delete Internet Favorites

If you cook you own ROM, there isn't much use for it. However, lots of folks use pre-cooked ROMs and this is a quick way to get rid of the default favorites.
