IE8 favorites not working in Win7 after an uninstall of IE8

    IE8 favorites not working in Win7 after an uninstall of IE8 and then
    re-install. Favorites will not open after installing then removing IE8 beta
    in IE... The favorites appear as normal in the toolbar, but none of the links
    work.

    Import does not work either from previous IE8 bookmark.htm save..."some
    items not imported correctly" also, did IE8 default reset from TOOLS,
    ADVANCED, RESET and that did not work either.

    Import of bookmark.htm into CHROME , FIREFOX and OPERA worked just
    fine...even tried exporting from these browsers and then inporting into IE8,
    no-go...

    Why would IE8 Favorites not work?

    Thanks for your help.

    You installed & uninstalled IE8 Beta in Win7?

    Are you (still) running Win7 Beta or Win7 RC?

    I uninstalled IE8 regular out of Win7 Ultimate. I was having weird issues
    with IE8 on displaying webpages, cache issues, cookies problems...etc. So I
    thought a uninstall and reinstall of IE8 in Win7 would fix the issues.
    NO...now all my favorites don't work...

    I should say that about the same time I was trying to use an IE7 standalone
    and also
    IE Tester 4.2 That is when I first noticed the non working favorites...

    I uninstalled both of these and no change...still no working links in
    favorites.

    There's a reason standalone versions of IE aren't supported in any Windows
    version & you now know why. Wipe & reload.

    I think you will have to reinstall it. It sounds like you hosed IE
    completely by removing IE8, and also by installing a "standalone" IE7 into
    Windows 7. IE7 is not supported (meaning it does not work and will break
    things) on Windows 7, and removing IE8 from Windows 7 is not supported
    either. What made you think that either of these would be a good idea?

    The Idea was: I was trying to fix some minor issues that I thought a reload
    of IE8 as a new copy would fix..."pages would not update when refresh button
    was clicked" is what started it all...(turned out to be a cookie issue)

    The standalones were supposedly "sandboxed". I suppose when you say "hosed"
    you mean a complete reinstall of Win7?? Say it ain't so!!

    Isn't there a "repair" of Win7 from the installation disk? Without a
    complete erase and reinstall of Win7 to fix this IE8 problem???

    I'd very much doubt that a Repair Install would fix this.

    The Problem Now is that my Win7 was a 64 bit installation and/or repair and
    all the favorites work in IE8 Win7 64 bit.

    BUT, now the 32bit IE8 (which is required for webpages to display FLASH
    content) will not load the Favorites from IE8 Win 7 64...the titles of the
    favorites are loaded in Win7 64 bit IE8 32bit, but NONE of the links
    work...BIG pain...the browser works if you completely type in the URL
    manually.

    Help please....

    The Problem Now is that my Win7 was a 64 bit installation and/or
    repair and
    all the favorites work in IE8 Win7 64 bit.

    BUT, now the 32bit IE8 (which is required for webpages to display
    FLASH
    content) will not load the Favorites from IE8 Win 7 64...the titles of
    the
    favorites are loaded in Win7 64 bit IE8 32bit, but NONE of the links
    work...BIG pain...the browser works if you completely type in the URL
    manually.

    I even tried importing the favorites into FireFox and exporting them
    to a safe place on the hard drive and tried to import them to IE8 32
    bit on my Win 7 64 bit machine. Work in FireFox but the favorites
    import to IE8 32 NO GO..."some items were not imported successfully"

    Help please....
