I have hosed up my IE Favorites. In attempting to correct the problem I erased them all. I then copied them back. When I open Favorites they show that they are there, but the sites will not open when clicked. Also, when I try to save a website to Favorites I get a message "the system cannot find the file specified".

Look for a folder on the hard drive:

c:\documents and settings\%user%\favorites

the %user% is your login name. Does the file exist?

Are there any links inside of it?

Humbll, Yes file exists and there are links. What now?

Check one of the links inside the favorites FOLDER to see if it IS actually a link. When you hover the mouse over it or right click it and click on properties you should see a URL to the website it is bookmarking. Then it should open IE and load the page it refers to.

My Bookmarks went away the other day and came back yesterday but have gone again, Are other people having this problem?
