    i think i see my problem after trying to answer your question.

    in all my attempts to reconfigure my computer after the crash, i must have screwed up my favorites as the thumbnail only shows the favorites as a 1 kb shortcut.

    i have an old floppy with my favorites..so i think i'll convert it to a cd as my computer has no floppy disk drive.

    any other ideas???

    Are you using the import/export wizard?

    If the favorites folder is contained on the floppy use can open windows explorer then copy psate the entire folder into favorites.
