  • 1. "The path 'newpost' does not exist or is not a directory" error
    I get this error message when I click on a hyperlink from a message board that I frequent, "The path 'newpost' does not exist or is not a directory". Recently, when I opened such a link I got a dialog box that asked me to browse to a .exe file that would open a link. So naturally I went to explorer.exe, no I cannot open links correctly. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks
  • 2. bug in ie?
    Ie got a frameset like this: <html> <head> <title></title> </head> <frameset rows="*,5%"> <frame src="test.html" name="Name1"> <frame src="test.html" name="Name2"> <noframes> Not supported </noframes> </frameset> </html> In the test.html there is a link like this: <a href="next.html"> next </a> Now loading the page and clicking on the "next" link should activate the back-button of the browser. And it is enabled, if the path of the local file does not include the sign #. For example - all the html files are residing in... ... X:\CSharp\test - back button is enabled and everything is ok. ... X:\C#\test - back button is disabled all the time. Is it a bug or is it an easy way of disabling the back-button ;-) Thanks for any information about this topic! Greetings, timtos.

    How do I remove or disable Flash ? I've checked all the Internet Explorer options and Add/Remove programs... don't see anything. Flash advertisments are getting soooo obnoxous, I'm ready to drop the whole Flash functionality. [Yes, you can R-click on the Ad and turn off Loop & Play...but that dosn't always work, and it too much trouble. Other suggestions ? thanks
  • 5. Hotweb Search.com
    Hi, I have a friend who has Hotweb Search.com that keeps coming back to his computer. He is running Windows 98. He has also run Ad Aware and Spy bot. He had a friend take his computer and try to clean it through the registry. I assume this is spyware. I am going over Saturday to try to help him clean his system. I've downloaded all the cleaning programs listed here and hope that one of them will clean it. Is there anyone in the group who has any experience with this spyware? I'd like to be able to get right to the problem and delete it/restore his system. Also, I'd like to make sure it doesn't appear after I've cleaned his system. He also mentioned that he had some references come up to Global Web and Alexia. So far, I've been able to clean most computers I've worked on. Mainly because of what I read in this group. Thanks for any help. C. E. Jones

Favorites sub-folder keeps disappearing

Postby Noangel » Fri, 18 Nov 2005 08:23:49 GMT

Hi All,

Some time ago, I created a sub-folder in my favorites list called
"shopping".  Beginning about 6 months ago, every once in a while (often),
that particular folder disappears.  EVERY other folder and link remains
intact.  I've exported the list so that I can import it and restore the
"shopping" folder, but there's a major flaw with that.  Unless I export the
list every time that I make an addition or deletion anywhere in the list
(sub-folders or direct links), the import of the backup will only restore
what was in place at the time of the export.  I'm sure I could export only
the "shopping" folder, but again, I'd have to do with each edit.

Why is this folder disappearing and how do I make it STOP?!

PS
Checked Advanced tab in Internet Options and "Enable personalized Favorites
menu" is NOT checked.

Thanks in advance.  This has be driving out of my mind!

Nancy

Hi Nancy,
I can't think of a reason why this should be happening. 'Shopping' may be
recognised by some anit-spy programs on your puter and they may be removing
the folder.
Have you tried renaming the folder to something else that does not include
the word shopping?

I don't know. Maybe your husband has been deleting it behind your back to
curb your spending!!

No, I haven't tried that, but I will.  Thanks for the pointer.

4.Outlook favorite folders keep disappearing!

Hi,

As per subject line - my Outlook Favorite folders keep disappearing!

I keep replacing them with the shortcuts back to the original folders, 
but every now and again (read: perhaps a few times per day) they 
disappear and I'm just left with the Unread Mail folder....

Any ideas?

5.Favorites mail folders keep disappearing

I have an intermittent problem with the Favorites folder 
in Mail.  I'll add several folders that I want to keep an 
eye on.  Frequently, of late, when I reboot or quit OL 
and then restart most of the folders I've added are 
gone.  Once everything disappeared, but most often it 
seems that the last 2 or 3 that I've added are still 
there but everything else has disappeared.

Anyone know what gives here?

Ken
