    Hi see if any one can help me out here please or direct me to a source of help.
    I'm using a Sony notebook GRS515 IntelP4 @1800 O/S Win XP Home.
    The problem I have is that once Internet Explorer is open and I go to my favorites folder once selected to show all my folders and links within (this is from the tool bar) to offten I can not get my folders to open or expand no matter what.
    I've updated IE6 with sp1 also I've now updated Win XP with sp1 and yet still the same problem.:(
    I've done yes a reinstall of the pc but yet can't get this dam favorites to function as it should.
    If I use favorite by View and tool, top plane I can get to my folders in favorites since this expandes automatic.
    Dam Microsh*t

    Thanks from:
    MaryJ

    Welcome to the forums MaryJ. :D

    I think you might be describing the personalized menu. Open IE/Tools/Internet Options/Adavanced/. Untick 'enable personalized favorites menu'.

    Hey MaryJ you said you did fresh install. Did you again upgrade IE then use sp1? If so that could be the problem. SP1 has the IE update included with it.

    Is the problem you are describing to do with what they call the personalised menu in IE?

    You could try repairing IE.
