Windows 7: Saved links in favorites File won’t open

Saved links in favorites File won’t open

When I save “some” web pages in my Favorites File, I go back to double click on them, and they don’t open. Using IE 7 or 8

Why is that and how can I fix this?

GREAT! That seemed to work. Now, my webpages are not saving the email address or passwords.
