Can you mention your version of internet explorer
Did this problem start recently?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
This problem just started recently and I think it is IE7. I am afarid to download IE8 because everytime I download something on my computer it crashes.
Expert:  lifesaver replied 7 years ago.
Ok,this might be due ta variety of reasons....

Have you go a setup file of internet explorer 7 atleast that we can use to reinstall IE7
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I have no idea how to do that and I don't want to loose all my favorites that I have marked.
Expert:  lifesaver replied 7 years ago.
Ok first perform these steps after opening internet explorer to back up your favourites:-

  1. Select File -> Import and Export. This will start the "Import and Export" wizard.
  2. Select Export and the click on "next."
  3. Select Favorites and click on "next."
  4. In the next window you can accept the default Save Directory or choose a new one. I suggest you select "Desktop" so you can easily find the file again. Click on "next."
  5. Finally, click on "finish" and your Favorites will be saved to disk.

The default file name is "bookmark.htm": simply copy this file to a floppy disk or even email it to yourself (or both). Reply to me when done..

I could not get it to work. I am working with Microsoft Vista. I hate Microsoft Vista!

What problem did you encounter and at which step?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
There was just no single Export. It said Import/Export and gave me a bunch of folders so I wasn't sure what I should do. It did not allow me to use the desktop.
Expert:  lifesaver replied 7 years ago.
Didnot the import export wizard start?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No it did not.
