I sooooooooooooo hope you can help me!
I use Windows Vista and IE. I went to my star icon in the upper left of my IE window for my favorites drop down menu and suddenly it is BLANK. When I go to c:/users/kathleen/favorites folder, that shows empty too. I'm the only user on this computer. Just before this happened, I was annoyed at the users folder always being fully expanded everytime I use the windows explore function and I thought marking the 'hidden' box (I right-clicked on the users folder and hit properties and checked the hidden box under attributes) would do the trick. The next time I went to my favroties, nothing. I undid the hidden thing and that didn't work. The shortcuts aren't in my recycle bin either. And I never thought to save my favorites anywhere.
I tried doing a system restore and that didn't do the trick.
Anything I can do? Why didn't the system restore bring it back? Where the HECK did my fave's go and how can I get them back?
Thanks in advance!
