I was trying to play around deleting the ones in the bar that I do not care for, and went to "Tools/Favorite Bar, and clicked on it. I thought it would give me a warning first, since I have IE8/Vista Premium, but the whole bar has disappeared, and they did not go to the Bin, I found them at the bottom of the Favorite Lists. I would prefer to replace the Favorite Bar, the way I had it to begin with.
Please, be very explicit, very new at all of this. My thanks to you,
