my favorites problem

  sunny staines 09:24 15 Sep 06

If I go start - My Favorites and click on any web listed nothing happens.

If I open a web IE first then go to favorites from the tool bar all is OK.

Any one got a fix for this please.

if i understand you correctly you are trying this without explorer ( or whatever you use ) running, if so it is my belief that they are just links and non operational without explorer running to route it which is understandable, and not resolveable as far as i know.

i am using XP Pro and i have alway just clicked the start button, then the start menu in xp has a icon for favorties ithen opt for which ever web favorite i want and it used to open but not any more unless i open IE and use the toolbar favorites in IE, my wife has a couple of short cut favorites on the desktop they have stopped working as well.

This maybe worth a try; Under Tools - Internet Options - Advanced - Restore Defaults
