    Favorites not working (6)

    Hi

    For some reason my favorites aren't working anymore, is there an option which I need to check which will enable favorites to start from the Favorites menu again? I can't remember any significant change to my system (new service pack etc.), but I've obviously done something silly to stop it from working.

    Many thanks
    Hayden

    When you say they aren't working, do you mean you click on the Favorites menu item and nothing happens?
    Or you click on the Favorites icon and nothing happens?
    Or you can see your favorites, but clicking on them doesn't do anything?

    Hi Leif

    Yeah sorry I should have been more specific with my question so my apologies for that, but basically when I open IE, and click on Favorites I can see my folders and lists of favorites but when I click on them nothing happens.

    I've never come across that before.

    If you right-click a favorite and select properties, does it look correct? (i.e. does it look like the attachment?)

    A couple of things to try

    1/ Within IE select "Tools>Internet Options..." - on the Programs tab click the "Reset Web Settings" button

    2/ Select Start>Run and in the run dialog enter the following which should reset the internet shortcut file associations:

    <code>regsvr32 /i shdocvw.dll</code>

    For more options see problems with the favorites folder in particular the part about possible corrupt favorites folder (backup first)

    Hi Leif

    I did both things Tony suggested and hey presto it worked. I'm not sure which one fixed it or maybe it was a combination of both I'm not sure. All I know it's working the way I want and I'm very happy.

    Cheers for now
