Roaming Profiles and IE7/8

I have just done an installation which comprises a Windows 2003 Server configured as a domain controller and Windows XP Pro clients.  We need to use roaming profiles - when a user logs-off, once in a while several files are created in their profile which can't be overwritten or deleted - one of them is called something like "Microsoft Shop.url" - there are maybe 5 or 6 files all ending .url.  I downloaded a little utility that allows you to override the lock on a file and thus delete it.  Once I've done this, the user may be able to log on/off a dozen times but eventually something creates the files again - does anyone know what's is creating these files?

*.url is IE Favorites. Is the files located under %USERPROFILE%\Favorites?
