Q. Is there any way that
I can Scan For Dead Links in my Bookmarks? I have years and years worth

A. This answer is one that
you will definitely want to read up about. It addresses a problem
that has irritated me (and I'm sure it has irritated you) for

This is a Freeware Program (and no I am not
affiliated what-so-ever with the makers of this program in any way).
Here is a screenshot of the program while it is running a scan of my
