I have an issue with Add to Favorites, when I open internet explorer and go to a website then try to add it to favorite, it DOES NOT open up that window where to enter name and click OK.
it also does not add the link to favorites.

Any help?

What antivirus program you using?

jskfan--Is this something new?  Try a System Restore to a date before the problem started.

A workaround might be to right click a blank spot on the webpage and click "Add to Favorites...".  
Another way to access is to click Control+D.
Try these so we know the extent of the problem.

And a fix might be

Be aware of the effects of a Reset

You have not told us what version of IE you are using.
