I have lost my Favorites in IE8. They are in my Folder C/Documents & Settings/Owner/Favorites in Win XP. How do I restore them to IE ?

I have looked at 'Favorites problems'.Will Favorites be under all the 4 keys or only under 1 key ?

  1. back up the registry before altering anything
    1. you only need to modify the key HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Shell folders
    2. In the Value Data Name box put C\Documents & Settings\Owner\Favorites

Restore IE8 to default via tools, internet options, advanced tab. Click on restore to defaults. Enable addons a few at a time as one might be creating the problem.
