    Favorites list changed to folder on C drive (6 sp1)

    For some reason, my favorites list in ie6 on an xp pro
    machine is now showing all the folders on the C drive. If
    I look at the favorites folders under the user in
    documents and settings, the correct favorites appear.
    Since ie seems to be looking in the wrong place for its
    favorites, is there a way to force it to look at the
    specific folder?
    Thanks in advance

    Is this list being shown in the Favorites from the menu or is it in the pane on the left side of IE?

    If it is the left pane, it may be the "Folders" has been selected in the 'View, Explorer bar and then Folders' of the menu.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Dave. It's in both places. Checking and unchecking view items in the explorer bar has no impact on what's displayed other than when it's on the side to shorten the menu. Do you know if there's a registry entry that might point it to the correct folder?
    Best regards,

    While you are signed is as the current user, you may want to look here:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionExplorerShell Folders
    "Favorites"=

    -and-

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionExplorerUser Shell Folders
    "Favorites"=

    -and-

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionexplorerUser Shell Folders
    "Favorites"=
