i have found a second favorites folder with the same location - i deleted it tonight but internet explorer is still not displaying favorites. I did try reseting IE before i deleted the second favorites folder and it did not work - i will try reseting it tomorrow now i have deleted the second folder.
You asked if there were any other issues with my computer, there is......
3 different virus scans showing 0 infections but still have the following problems
after 3 or 4 attemps of accessing docs, my computer and/or programmes etc the computer starts to run very slow or even crash - some of the symptoms are...
*computer slow in start>search tab
*shows white panel if i try to load documents
*looses google tool bar intermitantly and bottom display freezes including the clock
*google searchs say search retun in 20secs but actually takes upto a minuite
*desktop icon white paper with folded corner
*google/microsoft not responding messages all the time
*if i restart the computer for upto 5mins everything work fine, then all the above recur
also dont know if this is significant but in task manager it shows the CPU usage at 100%
on another forum they mention a ghost file which is created by IE which saves the favorites to the same location but they cant be seen - do you know anymore about this?
sorry for the rant
- but im about ready to download the computer from the third floor window!
