    Need help with IE 6.0 Favorites

    I need a little help from my brethren out there - I thought I lost my IE favorites (they don't show up anymore), but when I attempt to add one that was in the list before, it asks me if I want to override the existing one (even though I can't see it in the menu). I know, sounds like a weird problem, but if anyone out there has a clue, I'd love to hear about it!

    Thanks!

    Personally, I hated 6.0.

    I went back to the older version.

    Sounds like the favorites folder was moved.
    You need to find it on your local HD (probably in someplace like C:\Program Files\Common Files\Documents and Settings).

    I hate to send people to MickeySoft's website (because it sucks donkey balls) but that probably is the best place to look.
    Or Google "Lost Favorites Folder".

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Z, as usual, is probably right;

    At the bottom of your screen click on "Start"

    Then click on "Search"

    Then click on "For Files or Folders"

    Then click on "All files and folders"

    Type the word "Favorites" in the "All or part of the File Name" Block

    Click on search.

    Were does your Favorites show up in?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    He might also need to go into the Advanced area of the search function and make sure that it is searching for hidden files and folders.
