Also, all of the passwords have to be redone. But again, this happens only after new updates from MS are installed.
I am not familiar with anyone that puts "email favorites" on the desktop. It might be simpler just to use the email program. If she types the first few letters of the persons name, the whole name fills in the email address. She won't have to mess with losing the password each time Windows Updates.
