Thanks for the tips.
I never knew about the Internet Search Sites folder in the system barge, but there they were.
I editted out all the Sherlock sites I never use ( bye-bye Alladin Systems, Rolling Stone, Music Boulevard and Amazon.com et al ) by manually moving them to a folder outside the System Folder. They will remain there till I ever need them , but I can't imagine why I would....
But what about Sherlock's Preferences...should they be trashed?
One last query.... does Sherlock 2 in os 9.x use this same stash ? I'm going there someday soon.....
