As usual, I misunderstood the wife about this problem. She copied and pasted her "email" favorites from the old computer, XP, to the new Win 7 Pro computer.
She pasted that to the desktop. Only 4 continue to stay on desktop after updating is finished. Have no idea where this idea came from.
Also, all of the passwords have to be redone. But again, this happens only after new updates from MS are installed.
