Favorites prob on IE8

Hi, cant save any favorites using XP & IE8.
Totally blank when favorites tab is clicked.
History is there and can be accessed.
Any ideas welcome

thx, the problem is that it will not add/save favorites. Think it might be a reg error.

What happens when you try - do you get any error message? And are you sure you are adding using the Star icon on the left (not the right-hand icon as in IE7). If you use the right one you will be adding to the Favorites Bar.

alt+z, add to favorites from menu, right click etc....none work. No error message....just blank favorites but history tab has data in.

Looked in reg as suggested. Found favorites mapped to F: Now I understand!! This is a work laptop & needs to be logged into work network where F: is our home drive. Doh

Thanks anyway.....least that mystery cleared up lol.
