My favorites is locked-WHen I click on favorites it doesn't move-I have reinstalled IE and also hit the reset botton for IE and to no avail-help-not only is this aggrivating,I am worried I may have picked up a bug of some sort-

*help me-please*

DOesn't anyone care or know or has someone who knows? *sniff*

I care but I don't know anything about IE other than it's supposed to be bad...

Sorry.

i did not want to make my usual response and get ripped for the usual worthless comment but I was going to say this

I have not had that happen to me but once I lost all my shortcuts, it sucked!

i had to reload them all

would reinstalling IE actually make you lose everything?

when are you going to use FF? it is much better, IE was always crashing my computer!
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 12:55:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have FF-but I can't post pictures using FF for some reason-

I can't believe this

300 URLS are toast-usually the reset button works-not this time
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 12:57:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
And you've restarted your computer? Is it at all possible that you downloaded a different toolbar?
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:00:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not a chance Denny-When I reinstalled IE it rebooted twice, and no other toolbar but IE -I will add stumbleupon MAYBE if I ever get this sorted out

good luck!

Here's a longshot, get the Google toolbar and see what happens. Can't hurt!
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:06:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
That comes with some malware I would rather not carry-they say no, I beg to differ-

Any other options?
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:07:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've never had any problems with the google toolbar! You can always uninstall it. What in particular is supposed to be the problem with it? Yahoo might have its own toolbar also.

I don't know-it went on my sometimes yesterday when I was on Youtube(another YT addiction of mine)

I thought maybe a weird setting glitch on favorites happened, so the reset button in Internet Options should have done the trick-and it didn't-and it ALWAYS works-

300 URLS are now toast-

I added the Stumbleupon(another lovely site)tool bar-no changes-

13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:11:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Here's an article about toolbars. Having given it a very brief scan it seems the only information a Google toolbar is getting goes right back to Google.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:15:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Google amasses a HUGE amount of info on you-and that can be supoened at any time-am I doing anything wrong? Nope-

But a few years ago when my phone number was public , Google maps very helpfully added a feature to show you where I lived and how to get there-courtesy of the phone company's white pages-

No thanks-I actually called Google and found the link that said NO to that option-

Scary thought and ever since then, I don't trust them-
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:16:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
google maps is evil and wrong a lot of the times-
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:19:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
I guess you need to weigh your feelings about that versus the loss of your URL's. Ultimately anything is available to anyone who has enough time to search for it. Personally I'm not terribly worried about my browsing history winding up at Google.

Look at it this way, download it, reclaim your favorites, get rid of it, and fix your system.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:19:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Aw hun I'm sorry, I wish I could help!
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/4/08 - 1:23:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would like to know what started it, so if it happens again, what I can do about it-

And secondly, it the point-I don't care for a company that offers Maps to my front door-and anyone who has ever been stalked knows what a BAD thing that is-

Freedom of Information has overcome Freedom of Privacy


I thank you a lot-I know you are an alter, but it means a ot you took the time to help-

I am thinking that i might haf a bug/virus-because the reinstall should have worked and it didn't-another toolbar doesn't work so I am screwed without even a kiss-sux

Sorry my fine feathered friend.

If you still can't figure it out, Send me a PM. I refuse to offer computer advice over public forum, being a tech and all.

^hahaha!

Well it looks like LostGoddess is coming to your rescue!

Does your operating system offer system restore?

If so, go to a date perhaps last week, or the week before, and try that.

Good luck!

I had NO idea-and I like the idea of a woman tech-not so apt to suffer the perils of testosterone poisoning
