Last response: in Windows 7

When I click Update Favorites IE doesn't respond. I use Task Manager to terminate the program. It works in other user accounts.

There is a down arrow next to the Update button. When I click on the down arrow a pop-up window appears. There are 4 items in the Window. The second is update Current tab only it is grayed out. If I could select this option, probably I could update my Favorites list. Can someone help me trace what file is either missing or corrupt.

Have you tried to boot up in safe mode to see? Maybe safe mode might help.

Since Favorites worked properly in other users accounts I decided the problem was being caused by file corruption and deleted the user where Favorites didn't work. Before I did this I tried to use a utility to bring configuration settings and data to a new user account. The utility did not work.

I now have one user setup in the VM. I ran PCTools Registry Mechanic. It reported 28 errors. I also ran a free download aand it reported 328 errors. I haven't made any changes to the Regisry. I'm still chewing on it.
