    Favorites subfolders not expanding (6/XP-SP1)

    Hi,

    I've got a weird problem with Favorites in IE6 (Windows XP-pro): sporadically, with no obvious cause, my favorites subfolders will not expand when I click them on the Favorites 'pane' on the left. This seems to happen when there are 2 or more nested subfolders, but after it happens it prevents you from accessing any of the other subfolders (although you can by going to the Favorites menu). Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    How many entries do you have in your Favorites list?

    It just may be trying to find all of them.

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

    I've got quite a few (a count in Windows Explorer shows 684 files and 72 folders - although that does seem a bit excessive, since I can't think I've created all of those!), but I'd have thought my computer should be able to handle it (P4-M 1.8GHz, 512 RAM, 40GB hard drive). Also, it's not like I've recently (to my knowledge) added a whole lot, yet this problem only seemed to start a few weeks ago.

    I have found that when opening a folder which contains a lot of links, it is slow opening. By the way I do NOT have nearly as many as you do, but I am running a 450 machine.

    Alex, If you recently applied hotfix 811493 try uninstalling it. It has been the subject of several long threads in the MS newsgroups and has been the cause of severe system slowdowns for some people.
