Internet Explorer isn't displaying listed favorites
A user has done something to disable IE6 Favorites from displaying any
listed favorites. When logged on as the user on a specific PC, I open IE 6 SP1 on W2K SP4, click on
Favorites then Add to Favorites and Organize Favorites appears, but with no list under it. When he
clicks on Add to Favorites or Organize Favorites, no new window appears.
I have reinstalled IE6 with SP1 and all the subsequent patches with no improvement. I have also
checked permissions and they appear to be OK. I can logon as a PCAdmin and it works fine. Any ideas
will be greatly appreciated!
This may be due to a misconfigured Group Policy Option for IE, "Delete Existing Favorites and
Links If Present." Make sure this option is unchecked. It sounds like it may be enabled for this
particular user or user group.
