Internet Explorer not working

My Internet Explorer won't load any of my favorites when I click on them. It loads fine when I type something in the address bar. Searches also work fine. What's going on?

I once fixed a similar problem by Exporting the favorites to a bookmark file which I then reimported again. It's worth a try because it takes only a couple of minutes.

Don't wory about it. Just "Export". It will automatically create a file called "bookmarks". When the little window says: "Where do you want to export ...." make sure you browse to the folder where you can find it again. Then reimport the bookmarks file from there.

Internet Explorer - Reset

If all else fails try the above tutorial. Step 1-3. If that doesn't work you may need to do step 4 on up.

Close IE and reopen to check. The restart mentioned is of Internet Explorer not Windows.

You won't loose your favorites but it returns everything in IE to default.

Might be worth a shot.

Just to clarify that's in IE 8 click File then Import/Export then Export to a file then check Favorites then follow the screen.
EDIT Ok I see problem is solved!
