I think you might be describing the personalised menu. Open IE/tools/internet options/advanced. Look in there for a box that needs to be unticked. It has something to do with 'enable personalised favourites menus'.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
