Client of mine  lost his Favorite list. Suddenly it was gone. I did a search by names of sites, Links, favorite, favorites. Just no where? He uses Windows XP Home edition.

slicktoo,
   Here are some solutions for finding your Favorites in XP. It could be due to a user setting, or McAffee AV, or etc.

If you are talking about Favorites on Explorer, etc... click view, toolbar, customize and add Favorites back to the toolbar.

cheers

hi!

i had the same problem yesterday! I created a new admin user on winxp pro and logged out and in with the new one. configured nothing in iexplore with the new account. then logged in again with the old account and all favorites were lost lol. (iexplore.exe: Security level high, privacy level high without customizations all servicepacks and security packs installed) No mcafee virus scanner installed on my system. probably a bug?
