    Lost Favourites

    I have lost all my favourites from IE7 and it will not let me add any in.
    Also my homepage has changed. Can anyone help please.

    Re: Lost Favourites

    Thank Mark, Printed out info and reset IE back to default. Checked my
    computer for anti virus protection etc. and it is all up to date. It is kept
    uptodate by Microsoft (I think its them!) I still have no Favourites to
    view and it will not save new ones. Completely blank list. Even if I've
    lost all my old favourites I could rebuild if it would only let me save.

    Cheers - hope you can help

    Don't even know how you do that - its completely empty and will not let me
    add. I could rebuild but it won't let me. Where would I find the location
    of the favourites folder ?

    Cheers

    Click Start, type the following and press ENTER:

    shell:favorites

    This opens the favorites folder. Click the Address bar and note down the
    Favorites folder path.
