  • 1. Disconnect notification
    Internet Explorer has stopped popping up a small window that asks if I would like to close my modem connection after I close out of the program. The consequence is that if I forget to close the modem connection myself, the modem stays connected when I think I'm not. Netscape still gives me the pop up when I close that program. Does anyone know the setting I need to select to get IE to notify me to close my modem connection when I close?

  • 5. Security, ActiveX, & "Page Cannot Be Displayed"
    I have a few problems. First, I keep getting error messages saying that my security options prohibit running ActiveX when I try to update Windows and try to access other pages. I have tried to play around with the security settings (trying to put it at the lowest settings) and I have enabled all the ActiveX things. I have done all the things the computer suggested but I still get the same message and the page won't work. Also, almost every other page I try to access I get the "page cannot be displayed" message. It is really getting frustrating because I have tried all the suggestions given to me and it still doesn't work. Please help! Thanks!

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
