  1. FIXED!!!! The combination of all of the above has repaired my problem. Many thanks to all of you for unbaffling a baffled dude. Testmy.net ROCKS!!
  2. The links shell didn't work, unfortunately. I also found out that it is very difficult to uninstall IE7 from my Vista system. It is deeply integrated and there isn't anything in the "Add/Remove' in Control Panel to uninstall IE7 either. I did install Firefox and my favorites are fine on that browser. I've put a shortcut on my desktop from the favorites folder in My Computer and can access them there. Last resort may have to be a clean reformat with my restore discs, but I won't do that until I'm desperate. Thank you for the suggestions, gents.
  3. I have scanned for all those nasties with Norton AV, Ad-Aware, Exterminate 2.0 and a couple of other programs. I actually installed the new IE8 beta 2 to see if that would fix it. It didn't, so I went back to IE7. I can try your suggestion of D/L another browser and uninstalling IE7, then install IE again. Thank you for your response and I'll get back to you with my results.
  4. Hi all I have lost ALL my favorite links in IE7 and can't figure out why. I am running Vista Home SP1. I have the favorite links in "C:UsersUser NameFavorites" and have always had it there. Yesterday I tried clicking on favorites and the cupboard was bare. I've tried to switch the links to another folder, but to no avail. I try to import the favs by using the "Import & Export" function in IE7, but when it comes to finding the "Bookmark.htm" file, it doesn't exist on my laptop. Is this actually needed? ..... and, if so, where can I get this file to replace the missing one? I am stumped after hours of searching fruitlessly. Please help.
  5. By BetaNews Staff, BetaNews June 2, 2006 Cable provider Comcast plans to roll out a new feature starting in New England that will double the speed of customer downloads from 6Mbps and 8Mbps to 12Mbps and 16Mbps. The PowerBoost feature is expected to roll out to the rest of Comcast
  6. I'm sorry, s1, but I laughed so hard when I read your text in DOS that I spit Pepsi all over my monitor.....sure it's not funny to you, but it caught me off guard here and cost me one sticky cleanup.
