Are you talking about the Favourites bar that is on the bottom of the screen when you are using the Internet Explorer App of the Metro Screen or the Favourites that normally appear to the left of the desktop version of Internet Explorer?

Yes I am talking about the favourites bar IE FOR WIMDOWS 8. The desktop menu is fine.

So when you open IE at the bottom of the screen do you see the Address Bar and the symbols for Refresh, Tabs, Favourites and Page Tools or do you just see a narrow black strip with three white dots? If the latter you need to click on the dots to open up the Address Bar and then click on the star symbol to see your favourites.

I see these but clicking refresh does nothing,clicking on the star all I get is you have added no sites!! I have just done a full reinstall yet again on boot up all the favourites are there on W8 start up screen and on desktop this is the 6th time i have reinstalled but yet again my favourites have again disappeared I see the favourites for about 1 second if I click on the star.

This explains how to import favourites maybe you could do it that way. You might have to first use the desktop version of I.E. to bookmark.htm in the My Documents folder as suggested by the dropdown text.
