I am using Windows 7 and when I made the mistake of accepting IE8 today my favorites list disappeard. .. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Poof, my favorite list disappeared when I accepted IE8.  My list is long and very important to me.  Why in heaven's name did this happen??  How can I get this file back??  I am using Windows 7.  This is the most infuriating and exasperating experience I have ever had with Microsoft!  Can someone please offer a step by step solution like how to find the trail of breadcrumbs the file left if it left any before it vanished.

    You aren't using Windows 7, by the way, I suspect that you mean that you were using Internet Explorer 7.
