Can't get site icons on tool bar.

After re installing my xp operating system, I can't get my fav sites icons on my tool bar. I drag them there, but they don't stay.
Any ideas?

Silly question, but is your Favourites Bar Ticked?
(Right click on menu bar to look.)

Rawprawn, the favourites bar is ticked.

Try resetting / reinstalling IE7/8 click here. This may get the Favourites bar to display again. G

Crossbow, I followed your instructions, and it mentioned about add-ons. I went there, and in the add-ons box there was a "toolbars and extensions" box to click, but it had a red no entry sign on it. also there was suppose to be a column on the right that said "load time", but I can't see that.

There are 3 solutions in the link (listed below), & none of them mention anything about add-ons?? So you've lost me there...

1. Reset IE
2. Reinstall IE
3. Install XP SP3

Btw, the 'Favourites' bar is not an add-on as it is part of IE.

My "Toolbars and extensions" also has that red sign, but one can still make changes to any add-on if required by right-clicking on them individually in the right pane. G

Crossbow, I did the reset IE and the reinstall IE and that did it. Many thanks for you help, I really do appreiciate it.
