I downloaded Internet Explorer 8 and lost my favorites page…

Customer Question
I downloaded Internet Explorer 8...
I downloaded Internet Explorer 8 and lost my favorites page so I restored the computer to an earlier date, but still didn't recover my favorites list. I tried to restore a couple of days more at which point the computer will not even get me on internet. When I attempt to open Internet Explorer, the screen goes white for about a 50th of a second and returns to the desktop. What do I do?

Hi

Thanks for your question.
You can undo the restore or restore back to the present date.

then reinstall internet explorer.

if that doesnt help then install firefox and when you install it, it will import everything from IE

so if favorites are there, it will import it

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
